Tiny Purse

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

5 stitches to an inch over the k1, p1 stitch pattern. 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

Purse Body:
Leaving a 5 inch tail, cast on 9 stitches. You will use the tail later for seaming the bottom of the purse.

Knit one row. Divide stitches onto 3 needles and join, being careful not to twist stitches. Place marker for beginning of round.
Purl 1 round, increase 1 stitch on each needle.
Work in knit 1 round, purl 1 round, increasing 3 stitches every round until you have 14 stitches per needle for a total of 42 stitches.

Now you begin to knit the pattern stitches.

Pattern Stitch 1: Seed Stitch:
Rnd 1: *K1, p1, repeat from * around.
Rnd 2: *P1, k1, repeat from * around.
Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 twice, then Round 1 once more.

Then you will knit the following pattern for 6 rounds:

Pattern stitch 2: Rib
All rounds: *K1, p1, repeat from * around.
Repeat last 11 rounds 4 times.
Next round: Bind off 21 stitches. You will have 21 stitches remaining.

Flap: Working back and forth in rows on 21 stitches, work in Seed Stitch for 4 rows. Continue in Seed Stitch, decrease 1 stitch at the beginning of the next 5 rows - 16 stitches.

Buttonhole: Work in Seed Stitch over 6 stitches, bind off 4 stitches, work to end of row. Next row: Work in Seed Stitch, casting on 4 stitches over bound-off stitches of previous row.

Work 4 more rows in Seed Stitch, and then bind off all stitches.

Strap: Pick up 5 stitches on bound-off edge of Purse, before first row of Flap. Knit these 5 stitches on 2 double pointed needles as follows: knit 5, slide stitches to other end of needle and, without turning your needle, pull yarn across the back of your work and knit 5. Continue in this manner, creating a tube, until strap measures about 36 inches or desired length. Graft live stitches to other side of Purse.

Finishing: Seam bottom of Purse with beginning yarn tail. Tighten buttonhole, if necessary, by sewing a stitch at either end. Sew on button. Weave in ends.

Tiny Purse Reviewed by Anne M Lawrence on 2012-10-20 *****
I like this. It was my first dpn project. I sized up the needles one size to make it a bit bigger, and I stopped when I got to the length wanted. The flap did not turn out rounded, but I will try again. I actually used it to carry my water bottle on my walk today
