purse 17 - calla lily

 

 
 

purse_calla_lily

A version of this breath-taking purse was seen in an expensive boutique, it was crocheted. Upon many requests I adapted my crochet version (purse 28 - peony) to knit, and wrote a pattern. The front of the purse is covered with coordinating knit flowers. Two strands of yarn are held together to knit this purse for a firm body. The clearly written pattern includes schematics and techniques.
