Pattern Description:

A Dominican beach, a glass of red wine and the love and company of your other half.
The foamy little waves colour the pink shiny sand into a creamy beige. Algae complete the scenery like a diamond necklace completes a stylish evening dress.
Red, orange, pink, a touch of mauve and a hint of green... the sun is setting.
Close your eyes, can you picture my evening?

The N2L Shellfish purse

A functional little purse that will become your most precious item on a night out.
When I go clubbing, I do not like carrying large purses on the dance floor. This little shell proved to be very practical for these kinds of situations.
If worn on the wrist the pearl strap will look like a bracelet and the shell will hang just enough for you to feel it in your palm.
It is spacious and it easily fits several notes, a couple of coins, your lipstick and even a mini perfume. The gap between the closing pearls is small enough to make it safe for you coins.
Last but not least, it is a stylish accessory that will complete your evening outfit.

I hope you will enjoy knitting it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
