Knit and felt this beautiful handbag. The trapezoid shape means this bag opens wide. The front and back panels are knit in a main color; the base, sides and handle are knit in a contrast color. The bag is approximately 10" x 6" (felting is an inexact science). The pattern is cleary written and printed on bright white cardstock.
The bag as pictured is knit with 2 skeins of Noro Kureyon, a gorgeous self-striping, 100% wool yarn, and 100 yds of worsted weight wool in a complementary color. Or you can use 150 yds of any worsted weight wool for a main color plus 100 yds of worsted weight wool in a complementary color. To order Noro Kureyon, click here.

The pattern requires US 10 and 10.5 circular or straight needles and US 10 double point needles. To order needles, click here.
You will also need a small stitch holder, thread to match the contrast color, a sewing needle, and a large snap (optional).
We love the rainbow effect that Noro Kureyon produces in the pictured bag, but you can use any feltable yarn. Bags by Mags purses are beautiful!
