Furry Fun Purse: Knit

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Fun Fur®


8 stitches + 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) with one strand of each yarn held together.

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 is worked with 1 strand of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and 1 strand of Fun Fur held together throughout.


With 1 strand of each yarn, cast on 26 stitches. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) for 2 rows. Work in stockinette stitch until piece measures 18" from beginning, ending with a purl row.

Next row (make buttonhole)

Knit 12, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit 12. Knit 2 rows. Bind off all stitches.

Fold piece in half and sew side seams.

With 1 strand of each yarn, cast on 40 sts.

Next Row

Bind off all stitches.

Attach strap to side seams at top of purse.

Weave in loose ends and sew on button.

Furry Fun Purse: Knit Reviewed by sheryl bland on 2009-02-13 ****
I am a beginner and this pattern was quick and easy; however, the strap did not knit up nearly as long as shown in the picture...strap might need to be twice as long to achieve length in picture.
