Im not exactly sure why this is called a Paolo Purse, but the designer had me at the Catherine Wheels. I positively love that stitch, and whenever Im wearing something that uses it, I get all kinds of inquiries about how its worked. Its the perfect time to do a little modest bragging, but best of all, hand out my business card, too. Ive gotten many a commission because of this stitch.

I got it! just go to it and it will ask again for an email. enter a bogus one the one you entered first and then when it takes you to the wrong place again hit the back arrow and there it is . print it quick!

I think it is adorable, and I would love the free pattern but when I click on the link it takes me to an old FaveCrafts page (from Christmas???) ....not sure what to do here...

Can anyone give me a link to this that actually works? I cannot get to any of these patterns in these e-mails. The links suck. I really like this one

I don't understand how to work Row 3 and couldn't find any helpful information about it so if anyone can help I'd be grateful. Thanks

Crafter 3511810: I have not tried this pattern yet, but this is what seems to be the problem. Row 3 says, "sc in in ch-1 space between dc's 2 rows below (working over next ch-7 space)" Are you working 2 rows below? This would eliminate the hole.

My problem with the paolo purse is: on row 3, when I work over the chain 7 space, there is a large hole, larger than the one shown in the picture. What can I be doing wrong?

Pretty and handy for little things. Perfect to show.
