Saturn Clutch – Free pattern from Dulces y Punto

Saturn Clutch – Free pattern from Dulces y Punto
Spread the love

The Saturn Clutch is not only a really cute pattern, but it is the first guest designer pattern on Sunflower Cottage Crochet! I am so excited to be welcoming Carla to our little corner of the internet!


Carla is sharing with us her Saturn Clutch crochet pattern. I just love the way that the circles create that extra little bit of security and visual element when you do not want to use handles or straps.

A couple of points to note for this pattern:

This pattern is worked in continuous rounds so you may need a stitch marker to note the first stitch of each round.

You will also be working both sides of your starting chain in order to get the continuous round set up.

More about the designer

Carla began crocheting when she was about 11 years old, and has always been keen on arts and crafts. Designing clothes or accessories came natural to her as she wanted to wear original and sustainable items. Later she started designing home decoration items.

Carla loves challenges and learning new techniques. Last year she started knitting to expand her yarn repertoire. She also likes to play around with watercolor, but insists that she is not very good at it – for the record I do not think this is the case!



Design inspiration comes from the flowers in her garden in Cantabria, Spain and the sweets she makes; she is a chocolate and yarn lover. 

Dulces y Punto (Spanish for sweets and stitches) was created in 2014. For 4 years Carla owned a small chocolate factory (the sweets); and stitches… well, crochet and knitting stitches. Can you imagine owning your own chocolate factory????

In 2020, Carla decided to publish some of her creations to share her passion and opened a store in Ravelry where you can find some of her patterns, she is constantly updating it.


Carla’s designs are full of texture, items that are not only appealing to the eye but to touch as well.  Most of the time when she buys yarn she has no project in mind, like most of us, but the feel of her skeins, balls and hanks sometimes inspire her to combine different materials to create these textures that she enjoys while crocheting and wearing.

She has been published in 2021 for a special edition of Valeria Lanas, a Spanish yarn brand, and this year in Happily Hooked Magazine.
