Carrot Purse For Dress Me Bunny

crochet bag with carrots

I designed this purse for the Dress Me Bunny but you can use this purse and carrots to

go with other bunny patterns as well.
There is also a Basket of Carrots pattern available right here.
I hope you enjoy!

Attention members of all cross stitch and DIY sites
Read this copyright notice.

Supplies:
Red Heart Comfort yarn
Tango 3232 and Emerald 3233
4.00mm hook for purse
3.75mm hook for carrots
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors

Abbreviations:

st = stitch
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
BLO = Back Loops Only
f/o = finish off

Read me ~> Work in continuous rounds, do not join.  Add in a marker at the end of row 2 and move that marker at the end of every row. Read the rows the same way I explain how to read them in the Bunny pattern
Carrot: with orange (2 carrots fill the purse but 3 will fit nicely)
1) magic circle or adjustable loop with 5st (5)
2) 1sc in each  for 1 row
3) 2sc in first st then 1sc in next 4st (6)
4) 1sc in each st for 1 row
5) 1sc in next 2st then 2sc in next st (8)
6) 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (10)
7) 1sc in each st for 1 row
sl st next st and f/o. Stuff the carrot with the remaining yarn tail

Carrot Top:  
insert green into any back loop of row 7 and sc into every 2nd blo. f/o leave a short tail.
Root about 4 strands of green yarn  through the carrot top. Cut to desired length. Split all the strands or leave them as they are.

Purse: start with orange

1) magic circle or adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each (12)
3) 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (15)
4) 1sc in next 4st then 2sc in next st (18)
5) 1sc in next 5st then 2sc in next st (21)
6) 1sc in each st for 1 row
7) 1sc in next 6st then 2sc in next st (24)

8) 1sc in each st for 1 row switch to green on last st (24)
9) ch2 then 1sc in next st, repeat all the way around
10) ch23 and  sl st directly across into any exposed st. f/o and weave in yarn tail.


*Optional if you would like to close up the purse:
ch38 and f/o leaving a bit of a yarn tail for weaving. Weave this chain in and out through  row 9 then cut the yarn tails free leaving just a bit of length so that the chain does not eventually unravel. You can also add a bit of glue to the end knots if you're worried but it's not totally necessary.
Put in 2 carrots and cinch up the chain to close the purse. The carrot tops should be sticking out making the purse look like one big carrot. I think the purse looks great open or closed so you decide if you want to add in that chain or not.

  3. I just started crocheting again and love your patterns. I'm currently trying to make the carrot outfit for my grand daughter and am having trouble with the purse pattern. On row 3 it says 1sc then 3sc in the next stitch and that row should come out to 15 stitches but every time I do it I always get 24 stitches. I know that the previous row is correct. I am alternating the 1sc then 3sc like you have said to do before. Could you please tell me what I am doing wrong? Am I misunderstanding your instructions? Please help??
