While I was in Norway visiting my m-I-L.....I went to a yarn store and they had a nice purse ....Bigga yarn.....10mm needles.
just knitted it up...not too big, nice. Has a "handlegrip" . If I can learn how to attach picture of the pattern, will sent the pic..and pattern if anyone wants it.
ok.....there should be 2 attachments at the bottom......
Bigga Purse and the method of casting on in the middle of work...Step on is shown....Step 2 is only wrap yarn around needle and put it on the left needle....repeat until you have the desired amount of stitches .....
Here is the pattern that Ursula posted in another topic:
