This is the newly reformatted Eclat du Jour. It is a pattern for three fair isle knitted bags. There are three charted motifs - Thistle (a nod to Charles Rennie Mackintosh), Bee, and Pomegranate. Each bag can be worked in any of the motifs, and there are directions for optional handle reinforcement and lining. It was originally part of Sanguine Gryphon's Spring 2011 patterns, inspired by Art Nouveau.

Color, shape, and texture endlessly inspire me. For several years, I’ve been wholly consumed by knittingbecause it’s so forgiving, so flexible, and so free to the imagination. It also fits neatly into spare pockets of space & time, which makes it accessible to me, as designer, knitter, and mother of two busy little girls. I design the majority of what I knit, and self-publish the majority of it via Ravelry and here on Craftsy. The exceptions have been published in Interweave Knits Accessories 2011, Sanguine Gryphon, and with a Calgary-centric yarn club.
