Yay! This is my first post! I made up this pattern and lined it with a silk scarf I inherited from my grandma, then put in some plastic canvas supports.....


Please excuse the bad mirror picture:


inside...


Please let me know what you think!

Okay.....here's the pattern I used (I've never written one out so I apologize if it doesn't make sense or something):

Materials: worsted weight wool yarn (I used just over 1 skein of Patons Classic Wool, which is 3 1/2 ounces), size 8 needles

1. CO 66 st

2. Work 2 1/2 inches in k1, p1 ribbing

3. *k1, p1*10 times, cast off 24, *k1, p1* 10 times

4. *k1, p1* 10 times, cast on 24 tightly, *k1, p1* 10 times

5. Work 1 1/2 inches in k1, p1 ribbing

6. Work 12 inches in stockinette (k a row, p a row)

7. work k1, p1 ribbing for 1 1/2 inches

8. *k1, p1* 10 times, cast off 24, *k1, p1* 10 times

9. *k1, p1* 10 times, cast on 24, *k1, p1* 10 times

10. Work 2 1/2 inches in k1, p1 ribbing

11. Cast off.

12. Side panels:
      ~ CO 25 sts
      ~ work in seed stitch (k1, p1, then knit the knits and purl the purls) until it measures about 4 1/2 inches (when you sew them in you want them to line up with the top of the stockinette part)


13. Finishing:
     ~Fold over the two 2 1/2 inch sections at the end until they meet the handle slit, then sew them in place (this just makes a thicker handle)
     ~sew in the side panels
     ~chain ties to gather the tops of the side panels, and sew them in and tie them

14. Make a lining to fit. Mine was shaped like a rectangular box with no top, and I just sewed it into place (I also cut inch-thick strips of plastic canvas, doubled up, to sew between the top of the lining and the purse). Note: if you use a silk scarf for the lining, it's probably best to layer it with a cotton nonstretchy fabric for support.


*please ask if I didn't explain something well enough...

I adore this purse! I have no idea why only two other people commented.

It's such an original shape. I'd love to know more about the construction of it.

And I was wondering what my scarf buying obsession was all about. (I never wear them, you see.)

Great purse design!

Wow, do you think you could post your pattern?  I have been jonesing for a bag just that shape and size.  It's really lovely.   Kiss

Oh,  I don't usually wear it on my shoulder. I guess it would work, but it might stretch out the handles too much.
