I saw this purse in an ad in Cosmo, and it looks pretty nice, no? The necklaces are really cool too... And the colors! Great for fall.

So how would one make a knock-off? I'm not so good with the different knitting techniques used...
Do you know any pages where different techniques are described?

Do you think the front is made in one piece or are the four pieces sewn (crocheted?) together?

I'm out of handbag-project right now, and I haven't really tried to make any knock-offs. Anyone in on making one of these with me?  Wink

Oh, that is pretty cool!  I don't think I'd use it...  But it's fun to look at!
I'm not sure what the side panels are, or the bottom left panel is, but the two panels that are sort of bobbly look like trinity stitch, and the top right looks like pretty standard cables.  The squares might be crocheted together - I'm not sure how else the ridge between them could have been made.
Good luck if you decide to knit it Smiley

I don't knit, but i do crochet and grey is this season's new neutral....hmmmmmm. I've seen similar bags in crochet mags...so it'd not be a total rip off if I did squares and so forth. *laughs*...I'm considering it. I just got some yummy new grey yarn. Wink

That's cute! Looks like you could make a bunch of swatches and then attach them.

yeah it looks like 2 bobble swatches, 1 cable swatch and 1 maybe moss stitch swatch with a moss-stitch gusset all definitely crocheted together with an inside-out i-cord trim around the top edge

the necklaces look like I-cord pulled through chain.

Or you could just pull bulky yarn (or several strands of other yarn) throug chain.

Cool ideas!

Looks like a waffle or double seed stitch, a "bramble" stitch, and a basic cable.

Thermal from Knitty or Notre Dame sweater from IK Summer 2007 = waffle-y stitch

Rossniyev (sp?) from MagKnits is a cardigan with a bramble stitch pattern.

The cable is obvious.

And yeah... seamed up swatches with big crochet joins it looks like.
