Being an avid lover of Noro yarns, I wanted to design a smallish purse with a great color pop and lots of style. This pattern incorporates a small bit of stranded knitting along with the entrelac. The monk's cord drawstring and tassels are the finishing touch to this adorable little bag.
A photo tutorial for making the monk's cord and tassels is available online.
This bag should optimally be lined for greater stability.

After 20 years of working in music and worship arts, I have had the joy of spending the last six years teaching and encouraging knitters, as well as designing knitwear.
I am hopelessly addicted to making beautiful, colorful things.
