Browsing through a knitting book, a nice pattern draw my attention. In French it was called Pattes d'ours (bear paws). A little purse came to my mind to make.
As I was finished knitting, my son thought I had made a hat. And indeed, I can put my purse on my head perfectly.
So, you can use this pattern to make:
a little purse - with a set of 2.5 mm (US 1.5) DP needles
a hat - with a set of 2.5 mm (US 1.5) DP needles
a shopping bag - with a set of 4.5 mm (US 7) DP needles or which one you choose
or whatever use you can see of it
The pattern has written instructions as wel as charted.
with needles US 1.5 my swatch in the bear paws motif was:
27 stitches x 52 rows for a square of 10 cm x 10 cm
