Here is a Clutch Wristlet Project Bag Pattern that is stylish, functional, and discretely carries yarn for on the go. This helps you stop multi-tasking and focus on the single task of crocheting or knitting. This one is perfect to hang on the arm of a chair so your project stays clean and safe. No more yarn rolling to the floor or falling off your lap. And if the checkout line is too long, pull this out and crochet away the minutes instead of stabbing others in the line. 🙂

Single Tasking Day
Did you know February 22nd is Single Tasking Day? I know for many of us it’s so hard to do one task at a time. We are constantly juggling many things at once, especially in our heads. This crochet project bag is meant to help you complete the one task you want to, and that’s crochet. No juggling yarn. And it’s extra helpful if you are a multitasker because you can crochet and go!

Fasten a grommet/eyelet into each of the three chain 1 spaces on round 21.
(Follow the directions on the back of the eyelet/grommet kit)
Fasten extra-large grommets to the chain 2 spaces on round 29.
I recommend repurposing an old belt or picking one up from a consignment store. Cut off the non-buckle end to the desired length. Slide through the extra-large grommets and buckle closed.
Starting from the opposite end of the strap, stitch the zipper to the inside of the bag with a sewing needle and thread. If there is extra space between the end of the zipper and strap, stitch closed with yarn.
