Introduction

I got a chance to play with Red Heart Boutique Swerve! It’s being sold as a scarf yarn, but I saw something fun for summer – the Swerve Crochet Clutch!

Materials List

  • US – Q, 15.00 mm hook
  • US – G, 4.00 mm hook
  • Large plastic yarn needle
  • 1 skein Red Heart Swerve, 11 yards (Fizzy colorway shown)
  • 10 yards worsted weight yarn (Red Heart Stitch Nation Alpaca Love in Fern shown)
  • For lining: material, zipper, thread, sewing needle (red felt shown)
  • Button (optional)

Notes

Red Heart’s label pattern for Swerve calls for working the yarn with your fingers instead of a hook, and it’s easy to see why. With a yarn like this, you can’t see the stitches! What you’ll need to do is to go by feel, to find each stitch. Where you’d normally go under both loops, with this yarn you’ll want to go under just one. It doesn’t matter which one – again, you can’t see the actual stitches! Be sure to pull up each loop nice and big, never force the hook.

Just go with your gut and it’ll be fabulous. If you don’t have a Q hook, you could in fact make this clutch with your fingers! While it’s just single crochet stitches, the challenge of this yarn makes this an intermediate to advanced pattern. It’s worth it though, because the end result is so fun. And it works up SUPER fast!
