Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the Round
  • CO/BO

Pattern Description:

I'm not really a "trendy" person. I go for classic shapes and I own a lot of vintage (read: old) clothing. But I've fallen for two trends this fall - scallops and oversized clutches. Put them together, and you get Scallop of the Sea, an oversized, scalloped, fold-over beauty that's big enough to hold your wallet AND iPad, but hot enough to take to the bar.

Notes Scallop of the Sea is stranded knitting in the round. After you knit a big, scalloped tube, you will seam it flat on one end, and then the fun starts! It's lined with fabric and interfacing, to give it extra oomph, and finished with a colorful zipper.
