Another new pattern from the knitting show. This one’s all done up in a dark purple peruvian wool with tortoise shell acrylic handles. It’s the perfect beginner project because it knits up quickly and uses simple finishing techniques. The result is perfectly granny-chic.
This version was knit in a super bulky Peruvian wool – Cascade Yarn’s Lana Grande. To make it more durable, it’s lined with a turquoise satin. A little scouting turned up these handles on Etsy. It’s surprisingly simple to make and very fun to carry. Here’s the link to the pattern on Ravelry:
Just to jog your memory, here’s the original knit in Lion Brand Thick and Quick with bamboo handles and a little wooden button. Just think of all the other possibilities….get ready to make it your own.
