You do not need to know how to knit entrelac to make this pattern. It's a good first entrelac project, detailed instructions and the project is not too big.
You knit a rectangle of entrelac for the body of the bag.
The strap is knit in the woven stitch pattern which is a simple two row repeat. The strap is attached by crocheting it to the bag.
The lining is ironed onto the wrong side of the flat piece.
The handle is attached creating the sides of the bag with a reverse single crochet stitch.
Detailed photos and instructions are included of the various steps.
It is knit at a tight gauge of 22 stitches =4in
My design philosophy: My designs are a mixture of traditional and non-traditional elements. My patterns are easy to read and are often based on simple shapes and techniques that minimize complicated finishing. The majority of my patterns are accessories so sizing is often not critical. My love of texture and color shows up in my ability to mix yarns and to match yarns to particular styles.
