There is something about a woman carrying a clutch bag that exemplifies classiness. As a clutch bag is carried in a woman’s hand, it frees her shoulders allowing a woman to stand tall and stride with grace. Another great quality of a clutch bag is that it is free from clutter as there is only room for the essentials. I am delighted with the first textured clutch bag that I crocheted this year and am eager to try out a variety of clutch bag patterns. Listed below are five free crocheted and knitted clutch bag patterns that are worth checking out.
