I found a tutorial for the corkscrew fringe here: http://knittingincolor.blogspot.com/2006/01/knitted-curlicues-curlicues-are.html

I've searched a bunch of counterpane resources to try to find that garter stitch scallop stitch pattern, but so far, no luck. I'm planning to experiment with some swatches soon.

Must... focus on... WIPs. Gah!

That bag is GORGEOUS. I bet some craftsters could do amazing things with a pattern like that.
I do not, however, have ANY idea of how to knit it.

Here's another pix of it from http://www.salvatoreferragamo.it/web/index.html

It says on their website:

It certainly is pretty!

thanks for that pic oona...yeah, they call this knit bag a "crocheted carry-all" and the crocheted bag "knitted." go figure.

Yeah, that bag is definitely knitted.  But the corkscrew fringe is crocheted, so maybe they thought it all was...  we say the same problem with the knitted Fendi bag.  It makes no sense.  I mean, if one or two random crafters can tell the difference, surely it wouldn't take that much for people who should KNOW better to learn.

That bag is beautiful, though.  The pattern makes my brain feel... like the pattern looks.  A little twisty and scrunched.  Yikes!

And dig this Valentino bag:
http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod21740013&parentId=cat7850742&masterId=cat7370750&index=24&cmCat=cat000000cat000141cat000258cat7370748cat7370750cat7850742

What if we did a general designer bag along?  I don't think I could pull off the feragamo, but I bet I could do the Valentino.

hey lothruin, that valentino bag is gorgeous, too! and i love the idea about a general designer bag-along. why the hell not? the fashion world seems to be craftier than ever these days...check this out: http://knitlit.blogspot.com/2006/02/help-me-god.html#comments

p.s. i don't know if the sal f. fringe is knit or crocheted, but you can definitely do curlicues with two sticks! i posted a link to a tutorial that shows how.

I love those bags, too....The woman who owns the yarn store I frequent has figured out the pattern and the bag is awesome. She sells it in a kit, which includes the yarn and handle for, I think $75.00. I think they have it posted on their website if you want to check it out.....www.stitchcafe.com.

OK, I pulled out my Mon Tricot stitch dictionary and happened upon a stitch called "the baskets" which looks strikingly similar.  Then I looked at the bag in a large view at Neiman Marcus.  Then I decided that the stitch pattern probably isn't that tough.

I'll have to play with it, but I think it's really doable.
