Circular Purse

from Frugal Knitting Haus
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Circular Purse
Circular Purse

Pattern Description:

A ?unique? stitch pattern, that is so easy, yet makes this purse look as if it were woven fabric! Use rug yarn or a bulky yarn. We find rug yarn has more stability to keep ? heavy? things in, and keeps it from sagging. We used up scraps to make a center stripe pattern, but this could easily be made all in one color. Size is about 14? by 11 1/2 inches. Use a 16 inch circular needles, US size 10.5, and the knitting will go fast!


31/2 Stitches = 1 Inch
7 Rows = 1 Inch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • About 14" wide at top 111/2" high (Excluding Handle And Purse Bottom)
