View Full Version : Easy purse pattern?

12-01-2007, 01:31 AM
My dear friend recently had her purse stolen from her, and I'd love nothing more than to knit one for her! I've found many free purse patterns, but I do not have the knitting tools that are required and/or the patterns are too difficult for my skill level. (I'd gladly go out to get the tools I needed, but my LYS is VERY slow to restock).

Does anyone know an "easy" pattern that calls for 29" circular needles between US sizes 8 and 10 (or something close enough so that I can still get my gauge right)? Or a pattern calling for DPNs size 5-10?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :heart:

Take a look here, patterns by needle size

Any pattern that calls for straight needles in your range - 8 - 10 - will work. Just use your circs as straight needles and turn at the end of each row.

I think a Booga Bag might be nice. Its a free pattern and although it calls for 10.5 circs I think if you add a few stitches and use your 10 circs it should work. Just make sure you use wool yarn so that it felts.
