I finished the ripple clutch I was working on. I thought it was going to be big, but the pattern states the finished size is 4 1/2 x 10 inches and it does seem to be about that size. I think the button give it a touch of "bling". The pattern is off a Micheal's leaflet. I used Caron's Simply Soft and blue plastic hook I own. Don't know the size. The pattern calls for Vanna's Glamor yarn and a f hook. The original pattern also calls for a magnetic closure. I just used a button. It fits through the space at the top of the chevron.
