In the Northeast, we’ve been hit by a heatwave, and it has definitely reduced my desire to crochet.  There’s something about having hot yarn stuck on your sweat that just doesn’t make it fun.  So it seemed the perfect time to finish this beautiful bobble clutch that I was working in collaboration with Galler Yarns.

I made this using two strands of Parisian Cotton held together.  The mercerized cotton has a nice feeling on the hands, especially in this weather!  I had a hard time choosing the right button, but I’m happy with my selection.

I also had a lot of fun playing around with texture.

Besides the bobbles, I also crocheted in the back loop only on alternate rows.

And I like how the seams came out, too.

If you want to make one yourself, the pattern is available as a free Ravelry download.
