Little Knitted Purse

from Route 45
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Little Knitted Purse
Little Knitted Purse
Little Knitted Purse
Little Knitted Purse

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • k1f&b - knit one stitch in the front and back of the loop
  • k2tog - knit two stitches together

Pattern Description:

This little purse can be knit in one day, then felted, allowed to dry and the hardware attached the next day.

Instructions are given in the pattern for a Turkish Cast-On, which forms the closed bottom of the purse. If you don't want to try the cast on technique, you could probably do your regular cast on for double-pointed needles and then sew the bottom closed after finishing knitting.

The purse is felted after knitting and before adding the handles and other embellishments.

For the purse shown, I used Patons Tweed Classic Wool.
