Bag/purse patterns?
Hello
I'm looking for an easy knitting pattern for a bag or a purse, all I find are crochet or doesn't fit my needs or just difficult for me to understand and work.
I need a big bag or purse medium size, not big or small, because I go to university and I need a handy bag to put all my stuff in it, and if it got dirty I can just wash it.
I am not that good with knitting, I mean I only know some easy stitches. Please can anyone help me finding the right pattern for me?

Hi! I had this same problem.... I am making the Booga Bag http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html, and it's going great! I made it larger than the pattern because I heard they turn out kind of small. I haven't felted it yet, so we'll see what happens after that. But it was VERY easy to knit and went pretty quickly.

The Booga Bag is actually very small, but if you want to fiddle with it you can make it larger.

Do you knit in the round? Or flat only? Do you want to felt it? Big enough for what? Books? It helps if you give as much info as you can.

Here's some ideas. I think these are all pretty large. Some are felted some not.

Hello Jan
I can only knit flat pieces, I'm not sure what u mean with (felt)
I want to make it big enough to put my books and the big notebook inside it along with papers and other useful things etc...
I want to make inside pocket for things like keys or cellphone or my medicines, and another outside pocket for money and change, with long enough holders to hang it on my shoulder and want it to have cute shape, like for example the hole stitch, easy cable stitch, moss stitch, etc..., colors r no matter, I have much colors but I will make that bag with 5 colors (4 different green colors and white). I am using 5.5 mm normal needles only
Is there any other thing you would like to know?

Felting is using 100% wool or other animal fiber that has not been treated so you can wash it (superwash) and putting it in the washer so it felts the fibers together. It creates a thick, durable fabric.

Since you already have yarn and can only knit flat here is a pattern that isn't felted. It one seems like a good one that can easily be adjusted for size and lined adding pockets as you wish. You could also use any stitch pattern and colors you choose.

If you're going to be loading it up with all this heavy stuff, the books, I mean, you may want to think about making a felted bag. Just plain knit, no matter what pattern stitch you use, will stretch like crazy.

You could try looking in 'Knitting pattern central'

http://www.knittingpatterncentral.co...tes_purses.php

They have several dozen patterns. It's worth a look.
