What kind of assistance are you seeking? To convert the pattern into crochet or to learn how to knit?

If you do not know how to knit and you need to complete a deadline, I suggest looking for a crocheted purse pattern. And it may still be easier to look for a crocheted purse pattern.

You said this was a simple purse but you did not describe it. If it is a simple envelope style bag, you probably could create your own crochet pattern by simply choosing your stitch and then creating a rectangle where you sew up two-thirds of the length together to create the sides of your bags and the remaining one-third will be the flap.

If it is a bucket style bag, you could crochet a circle, or square, or whatever shape you want for your base and then beginning working rounds to create the sides.
