Crochet gauge:
Muskat: 20 sc x 25 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"].
Vienna: 18 sc x 20 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"].

Popcorn Pattern:
Row 1: Ch 3, 3 dc in the 1st sc, take hook out of loop, put hook in the first dc (the last of the ch 3), then in loop from last dc, yo and pull through both loops on hook (= 1 popcorn), * ch 2, skip over 2 sc, 4 dc in the next sc, make popcorn as explained above *, repeat from * - *, finish with ch 2 and 1 sl st in first popcorn.
Row 2: * 1 sc in popcorn, 2 sc in ch-st loop*, repeat from * - *, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
Repeat rows 1 and 2.

Purse: Begin at the bottom of purse. Ch 18.
Row 1: Crochet sc along one side of the chain – in the first ch make 2 sc, then 1 sc in each of the following 16 ch, in the last ch make 4 sc - put a marker in center of 4 sc (the side) then 1 sc in each of the 16 ch on the other side, finish with 2 sc in the first ch (there are 4 sc in this ch - put a marker in center of these 4 sc – the side). 40 sc on row.
Rows 2 through 12: Work 1 sc in each sc from previous row, but in 1 sc at each side of markers crochet 2 sc - this increase 4 sc per row. = 84 sc on row. Then work 4 rows sc, without increasing.

Change to Popcorn Pattern - see instructions above for approx. 9 cm [3.5"], then work 3 rows sc.

Strap: Work sc back and forth over 32 sc at one side (16 sc each side of marker) - work 1 sc less at end of each row until 8 sc remain, continue on these sc until strap measures approx. 20 cm [7-7/8"] or to desired length. Make second strap on other side.
