Yarn: Moda Dea Cache, in that blu color that's always on sale. 3 skeins.

Needles:10 1/2, strap in single crochet, also size 10 1/2.

Pattern: I bought SnB Happy Hooker. I loved the "Fat Bottom Bag", but I didn't like the way it was turning out. So I made it a knit instead. And I gave it a strap instead of the wooden handles. And a button closure, because I like shiny red buttons. Voila!

The color may be a bit washed out, but it shows my favorite part- the sparkly gold filament woven in with the yarn!

It's like a koala bear crapped a rainbow in my brain!

Very cute!  I just did a project yesterday with Cach and I love how it stripes subtly.  Your button is great--the purse just wouldn't be complete without it.

Wow!  That has to be the best knit hobo bag I've ever seen!  Great job, oh and I love the color and hint of sparkle!   Smiley
