I'm afraid I developed an obsession with knitting and crocheting Barbie tube tops when I was little. Fortunately, I outgrew the tube tops (in more ways than one) and I've since expanded my horizons include more substantial designs. I have a penchant for stitch patterns that look good on both sides and use them in my designs whenever I can. I love lace, cables and fair isle, but not all at once. Lately, I've been designing a lot of lace shawls. I also spin with my drop spindle, and hope someday to spin a yarn fine enough for lace.View all patterns by designer (20) »
The hexagon shape of this purse looks great in a variety of yarn weights and textures, even felting. A modular technique makes it easy to knit and portable, adding on as you go. A foldover flap that closes with an i-cord button, and a gusset that does double duty as a strap add practicality, so you can actually use this purse.
Purse pattern includes instructions for a bulky textured yarn, smooth dk weight yarn, or felt a worsted weight wool yarn. Use a hand-dyed or self-striping yarn if you don't want to fuss with color changes. This is a great stashbuster--take your pick, or make all three!
