Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to knit and purl

Pattern Description:

This little purse is knit using the Modular method of knitting, which means that the modules are connected during the construction and no sewing is required later. Once the two sides have been completed, they are joined together using a three needle cast off. An I Cord cast off (instructions included) completes the top edge of the purse and the straps are two simple chains, twisted together. A decorative button and some pretty beads complete this fun little purse.
I created this design whilst sailing around the many beautiful Islands of the Bahamas on our sailboat "Oneday".
