The fiber obsession began at six years old, and my first original design was the infamous Barbie tube top. Since Barbie wasn’t paying me a living wage to keep her stylishly dressed, I ended up going to college, knitting feverishly throughout my education to maintain my sanity. I quit my day job at the phone company when I discovered that real people actually liked what I made, and have been designing ever since. I have co-authored two books: The Knitter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails and The Crocheter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails. I have designed for several major yarn companies and contributed to various magazines, books, and other publications .View all patterns by designer (21) »
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!
