Felted Uptown Clutch

Lion Brand® Fishermen's Wool®


16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) before felting. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Blanket Stitch
Secure yarn on inside of work. Working from left to right, carry needle and yarn around from back to front, allow yarn to wrap loosely over edge of work. *Insert needle from front to back approx. 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) from previous stitch and from edge of work, catching yarn wrap with needle to form a "corner". Gently tighten stitch; repeat from * along edge.

With A, cast on 56 stitches. Work in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) until piece measures about 11 in. (28 cm) from beginning. Bind off.

Weave in ends.
Wash by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. To felt additionally, dry by machine on a regular setting until almost dry. Remove from dryer and pull into shape.

Using the purl side as the right side, fold piece to about 6 x 8 in. (15 x 20.5 cm), with a 3 in. (7.5 cm) flap. At center of flap, cut a slit for the buttonhole.
With B, join side seams using Blanket stitch. With B, work Blanket stitch around flap. With sewing needle and thread, sew button opposite buttonhole.

It was totally amazing! I am an advanced knitter but I made this clutch to put my cellphone and money in, and it worked great. Thanks a lot Lion Brand! : )
