All knitters have a stash. You might have knit many scarves and have novelty yarns in your stash. Or you might have partial balls of yarns that felt from various felting projects. This purse is a great way to use up some of your stash and have a beautiful purse. Ours was made of stash yarn. There are 16 different colors of Brown Sheep - Lamb's Pride worsted and 16 different novelties. To make this purse from scratch would cost a zillion dollars.

There are different ways of making an equally attractive, less expensive purse. It takes a combination (1 strand of Lamb's Pride worsted and 1 strand of novelty yarn held together) of approximately 25 yards to make a 4-round stripe.

Our customers have made many combinations:
  •  Sixteen colors of Lamb's Pride worsted and sixteen different   novelties - A
  •  Four colors Lamb's Pride worsted and four novelties in 4 round  stripes - B
  •  One color Lamb's Pride worsted and four novelties - C
  •  One color Lamb's Pride worsted throughout with as many   novelties as desired in 4 round stripes
  •  Two colors of Lamb's Pride worsted and two novelties 4 round  stripes
  •  One color alternating stripes of Lamb's Pride worsted  without        novelty and with same novelty throughout
There are an unlimited number of combinations.

This purse requires approximately 3 pull skeins of Lamb's pride worsted when using one color felting yarn or a combination of approximately 570 yards

This purse can be made with any 100% wool that felts in the weight specified as long as the correct gauge can be obtained. It is best to refer to the yardage to determine how many skeins or balls to purchase.



NEEDLES:
size 11 circular needle, 24 inches long



OTHER NOTIONS:
gauge ruler
tapestry needle
pair plastic purse handles or 1 pair metal handles
1 set (4 pieces) of purse feet 12mm — gold or silver

1/2 yard 1/2 inch wide ribbon to attach purse handles

GAUGE:

After felting: 20 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches (approximate gauge)

When felting you should use the recommended gauge; but it does not have to be as precise as for a sweater.
If your gauge is too tight the purse will not felt well
if your gauge is too loose you may run out of yarn
