Special stitches

Slanted single crochet (Ssc)                   

slanted single crochet works as a single crochet but instead of going under two loops you first insert hook under the left “leg” of the “v” of the next stitch and then under the two loops of the stitch, finish as a regular single crochet.

Invisible slip stitch (Iss)

When you’re ready to join the round, draw up height of active loop on hook a little and remove your hook. Insert your hook into the first stitch of the round from the wrong side to the right side, pull the loop through the stitch into the wrong side. Make the loop larger, put your entire project through the loop. Tighten the loop by pulling the working yarn string. Reinsert the hook into the first st from the right side, pull a new loop from wrong side to right and ch 1.

Note: Purse is started by crocheting around a leather base. You can make your purse shorter by decreasing the number of rounds of the purse wall (take away rounds between rounds 3-15). If you would like your purse taller, add more rounds between rounds 3-15 in purse walls. Ch at the beginning of the row counts as a st
