February Loom-a-long Origami Purse
The February Loom-a-Long on Ravelry is my Carolyn Origami Purse from the Fall 2009 Loom Knitters Circle e-zine. The pattern is available at Ravelry as a large print pdf for $1.00. I'm posting additional photos here to show the purse at different stages of the project. It is not a hard purse to make, and uses stitch variations of knit, e-wrap knit, and purl to shape the purse in one large piece that will fold up. The handle is made from i-cords. The entire bag is lightly felted to give it structure, but not remove the pretty stitch patterns. You can post questions at the Ravelry group, and also at Yahoo groups Decor Accents loom group. Hope you will all join in!
