I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
This lovely felted clutch uses a rippled welting pattern to give it unusual depth and firmness. It is a perfect clutch size at 7 inches by 4.5 inches (18cm X 11cm), and includes an optional I-cord wrist strap. The stitch pattern has just enough interest that you'll enjoy making this gem over and over again.
The pattern is designed for just one skein of Patons SWS (wool/soy blend) yarn, plus US 10 (6.0mm) needles.
Note: You will need to rip out your gauge swatch AND be careful about knitting to gauge to make this bag in one skein. Original pattern has been updated to incorporate fewer repeats
Approx 21sts X 30rows to 4" (10cm) before felting. Finished bag is 5in tall X 8in wide (13cm X 20cm) before felting; 4.5in X 7in (11cm X 18cm) after felting
