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)


  • Rug Yarn Approx. 210 yds. Tan, Approx. 30 yds. each of Brown, Purple, Blue, Gray # 101/2 Circular Needle, 16 Inches Long Yarn Sewing Needle with Large Eye Fabric for Lining Optional 12 Markers, Several Safety Pins

Suggested yarn:

210 yards of Bulky weight
