History: Miser's Purse

Forum: Crochet Talk

Has anyone heard of or made a Miser’s Purse?
Very interesting!

And here’s a pattern for another version. The above style uses rings to hold openings shut. The style below, slides the flap down over strands of yarn to create gaps in the yarn – the openings. (I think this one works like that… one similar, anyway)
