1K SharesThis purse is made with a gorgeous knitting pattern that isn’t terribly difficult, the horizontal herringbone knit stitch. It’s not for a total beginner, but if you are ready to stretch your skills, this is a great one to have in your repertoire! I’ve actually done this knit stitch pattern a couple of different ways in the past, but I’ve shared the stitch pattern that I find easiest here.? You’ll also find another blog post with additional tips and photos here on the blog to help you out.? I highly recommend checking it out (HERE) as it’s useful to visually see how this is done if you’ve never tried it before.?Once you’ve got the stitch down, come back here to practice it while making this fun little bag!It’s so cool how the herringbone stitch appears to be woven, right?? It would look awesome with any color yarn and any weight of yarn as well. The fabric turns out to be quite thick, so keep that in mind as you create your projects. It works well for the purse to add some stability and firmness.? While I ran out of time to line this bag, it would be a good idea to do so.MY LATEST VIDEOSFor this project, I used Lion Brand Homespun USA in Los Angeles Tan. It gives the purse the look of being a basket-like material or straw which is pretty cool.? However, you can use any super bulky yarn and color that you like.Do you remember this clutch that I shared from Wool & The Gang? Another variation of this stitch, isn’t it awesome?So let’s get started on this knit herringbone bag!You will need:US Size 19 Knitting Needles2 skeins Lion Brand Yarn Hometown USA Super Bulky Yarn in Los Angeles Tan (here) or preferred colorScissorsTapestry Needle to weave in endsUS Size J crochet hook to seam up sides (optional)Shoulder strap to attach for bag (I found mine at JoAnn Fabric)Measurements:As written, bag measures approximately 9.5″ deep X 11.5″ wide once assembledNotes:? This pattern is worked flat. You will essentially be knitting a long rectangle and then folding to seam up the sides while leaving the top as a flap closure.Remember this check out this blog post HERE on how to knit this stitch as well as see a link to a helpful video tutorial from New Stitch A Day!
