I originally bought this yarn to make a shrug but found the pattern too miserable to follow... I ripped it out and began to make this little clutch. I had a little inspiration from this thread but wanted mine to be a little more luxurious. I made the pattern up on my own and could try to post a tutorial if anyone's interested. I haven't lined it yet due to my lack of fabric, but that'll come within the next few days.



This picture shows the shape a little better.


And here's another just for size reference (and I love this bag so I wanted to take a million pictures!)

Enjoy!

EDIT: *TUTORIAL ON PAGE 2, SUITABLE FOR BEGINNER KNITTERS!*
This is actually a really good project to learn cable knitting on. It's easy, knits up quick, and looks a lot more impressive than it is!

This is definitely one of your best!! I love the color, the size, the shape and the pattern!!  If the bow is removeable, it would also look nice with a pin, vintage button, mmmm--just gorgeous how_german!!

That is just gorgeous.  Can you buy little purse clasps like that or did you take apart an old one?  I would like a tutorial for sure!

Have you ever put a brick through a big plate-glass window, Ralph? It makes a wonderful goddamn noise, and the people inside run around like rats in a firestorm. It's fun, Ralph, and a bargain at any price

I salvaged the purse frame from a bag I used for my prom, but you can definitely buy them. I prefer the ones that you sew on rather than the ones you have to pinch on the fabric with pliers.
Here are a few sites:

What a classic look! Could've come straight from a 40's or 50's glamour mag. What yarn did you use? It looks really familiar.
