Espalier Hipster and Tote

Project Description

Name of Pattern Espalier Bags What was your inspiration? The Espalier Bags are the first two patterns in a new collection that will include French inspired designs. Additional designs will include socks, an unusual crocheted scarf, a knitted lace scarf, curtains and a lampshade cozy. The designs will be introduced during the Spring and Summer. Espalier is a French term referring to the method of training a tree or plant to grow flat against a wall or trellis. The beautiful stitch pattern used for these two bags is reminiscent of the Belgian Fence pattern used in espalier and is highlighted by a pretty spray of long stitches that give a floral or leaf effect. They are wonderful Spring/Summer bags. Make several in different colors!!

What you will need

  • Dk weight yarn for the hipster
  • worsted weight yarn for the tote
