Pattern Details

This sweet little coin purse would make an ideal starter knit and felt project. I give very clear and detailed instructions not only for knitting this purse but also for felting by hand. This pattern is a great way to use up small amount so of yarn – why not make a stripy purse? The finished purse knitted with Cascade 220 yarn measures 11cm x7cm (4 1/4” x 2 3/4”) Needle size 6.5mm (US 10.5) Tension (Unfelted) 14 st x 21 rows - 10cm square stocking stitch (stockinet stitch) Finer yarn will make more delicate felt and smaller purses, thicker yarn will make chunky felt and larger purses. Choose needles to give a loose knitted fabric.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 6.5mm knitting needles
  • US 10 1/2
  • UK Size 3

I love to design things!, working out how to solve a construction conundrum and create a new pattern is my idea of fun. So Knitting ticks all my creative boxes. The wealth of shapes, colours and textures, that I can produce with yarn inspire me. Spending time in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company whilst my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles, gives me time to plan new ideas, new patterns and new shapes! Then of course, if it’s a felted design there is the excitement of washing my projects and seeing the magical transformation into thick soft felt. In 2007 I started selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and design events, in 2010 I was awarded a Creative business bursary from Creative Leicestershire. Soon after that I started selling my patterns for other knitters to enjoy. I wrote my first knitting pattern, the “Charlotte” hand bag, in 2006 and in 2015 I developed a variation of that pattern to be sold as a retail kit by House of Crafts. Since then, I have diversified into knitting project designs and my patterns have been featured in “The Art of Knitting” magazine, published by Hachette Press,
