7 Easy-to-Knit Handbags for Every Occasion (Annie's Knitting)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A variety of affordable and readily available yarns are used to create the seven different everyday purses featured in this craft book. Large or small, wide or narrow, zippered or buttoned, tote designs for all tastes can be found here. Each handbag has a very distinctive style: Luna is a big, slouchy bag with a Bohemian attitude; Dancette is a dressy cable and intarsia clutch for the evening; and Harriott is a classically tailored satchel. The bags are very easy to make, yet experienced knitters can enjoy showing off the more advanced techniques involved with a few of the projects.
