In this class, luscious yarn and hardware store findings come together to create a miniature knitted clutch. Cirilia begins the class by demonstrating an easy way to do a provisional cast on, then shows you how to create the body of the bag in the round. Before you know it, you’ll be binding off and attaching the metal closures. This project is a great way to use small quantities of special yarns that you’ve been saving for a rainy day. Plus, it’s made with both a detachable chain and a detachable wrist-strap, so it can be worn as a crossbody purse or used as a wrist clutch.
Here’s what you’ll need:Materials:
- Set of US Size 5 double pointed needles or a couple sizes smaller than the ball band recommendation for your yarn
- For bag flap - 1 skein (90yds) of worsted weight yarn (Cirilia uses Spincycle Yarns handspun in Helvetica)
- For bag body - 1 skein (120yds) of worsted weight yarn (Cirilia uses Spincycle Yarns handspun in Bantam)
- Stitch markers
- Yarn needle
- Crochet hook
- Scrap yarn
- 2 part metal closure
- Metal chain and wire cutter
- 2 1inch binder rings or other metal loops
