Entrelac is so addictive! Learn this technique while making a go-anywhere bag which looks fabulous in Noro Silk Garden colorways. It is knit with a slightly smaller needle than usual for its gauge (to create a firmer fabric) and features a monk's cord strap and tassels. It can be lined with fabric for greater stability if desired.
The smallest size is quite small - a purse for a cell phone, keys, lipstick and credit card - and not much more. The largest bag is still not voluminous but can accommodate normal purse contents.
There is a photo tutorial available for making the monk's cord and tassels

After 20 years of working in music and worship arts, I have had the joy of spending the last six years teaching and encouraging knitters, as well as designing knitwear.
I am hopelessly addicted to making beautiful, colorful things.
