Heather Yarn

Attempting to crochet a purse?

I want to crochet a purse for my mom, since she's been going on and on about how she wants this yarn purse she saw in Macy's once. So I found this really cute pattern, and it looks somewhat similar to the one she saw. I'm not exactly an expert at crocheting, but I think I can do it(: I'm just pondering what color yarns would look good together on this purse:

http://www.caron.com/projects/ss_heather/ssh_textured_purse.html

And btw the purplish greyish part in the middle is made out of two different colored yarns, I still haven't decided whether I should use one color, or two different colors mixed together like them did.
Thanks.

The color of the purse should really depend on what your mom wants. Generally purses look better in brown or black because they will match pretty much every outfit. However, I do love a nice yellow purse every now and then. It's nice to add a bit of color to an outfit.

Another option you can consider is to make it with mostly browns or blacks, but then use a contrast color (like blue or yellow) if you want to use two different colored yarns. You could use black where there is dark purple in the pattern, and then use gray and blue, or gray and yellow, where there is white and light purple in the pattern. Just an idea...

What is this? Great deals on Heather Yarn-related items? You bet!
