New Freebie! Dante's Purse


I wrote up the "recipe" for Dante's Purse.   Both of the project bags pictured in this post were made in the same basic way.  This recipe is flexible enough for you to play with dimensions, color, texture, pattern, fabrication, etc.  One of my favorite things about designing is seeing all of the unique ideas knitters come up with for my patterns.  This one has even more variables than most.  So I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  If you make one, I'd love to see yours!


This has not been test knit/sewn, so if you find any mistakes or have any comments about how to make the text clearer,  I'd love it if you'd let me know.  Now, I know there has been a lot of grumbling about my 4 stitch cast on on Thorpe and the One Day Beret.  Sorry to say that I've done it again here.  A number of folks have started those hats with 8 stitches and have found it easier.  I chose not to write this pattern up that way since I haven't tried it myself.  But how you start is up to you.  This is after all just a "recipe" and most good cooks add their own seasonings and ingredients to recipes.  Right?

You can download the pattern from the sidebar.
