Crochet Ribbed Wrist Purse

A sweet little crochet ribbed wrist purse, these purses have become very popular lately for carrying those little necessities or as a fashion accessory, carry your lip balm, small bottle of scent, lipstick etc. or even your money.

I have designed this one in a ribbed sc stitch using worsted weight yarn, it has created a thick chunky feel to it.
