purse 22 - oleander

 

 
 

purse_oleander


This is new spin on an old fashion purse. What can be more appropriate than a knit knitting bag? We pinned a pretty silk flower on the front to use as a purse.
 
This bag is easy but it is rated skill level 4 - experienced, because of a few short rows. The short rows give the rounded look on the lower edge. Three strands of yarn are held together to knit the purse, giving it lots of body. We used 2 solid strands and 1 variegated strand.
