This pattern is currently out of print but may still be available from your local yarn shop or one of the online stores.

Close these bags with a zipper closure, or a fabric hinge & cord, or a knitted frog for a most exquisite handbag, gift box, or jewelry box. When lined with sumptuous brocades, these little bags are a delight to open. When I carry mine with me I like to set it up on the table so I can see it. Looking inside is such a pleasure. I have plans to give small gifts in these little Pill Box Bags. Two lovely gifts in one. You won’t be able to knit them fast enough. You’ll want one for every outfit and so will all your friends.

This pattern can be knit in a solid color for the beginning knitter or in the color patterns pictured for the intrepid beginning to advanced knitter. If you have never worked with two colors before, this may just be the perfect project for you to do so. These bags knit up quickly and the results are so satisfying!

Pink & Gray (Large) Harlequin Bag

This small-ish bag has a retro look. It harkens back to a previous era of feminine, curve - celebrating dresses, fishnet stockings with back seams, platform shoes a la ’40s, and romantic hair styles. Dangling from your wrist, this bag will attract attention wherever you go.
The tallest of the Pill Box Harlequins, there are two suggested colorways: pink and grey (pictured on the pattern) and this season’s new “black”: tone on tone brown.

Worsted weight wool in pink and grey

Black & Gray (Medium) Harlequin Bag

The medium Pill Box Harlequin is the perfect companion on a trip downtown to the arte deco cinema in Washington DC to see Lawrence of Arabia, or to the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver for high tea, or the opera house in San Francisco, or somewhere closer to where you live. You’ll love carrying it, the velvet handle soft around your wrist. Or you’ll love making it and giving it as a gift to a girlfriend.

And for all you knitting men, the Pill Box bag seems to me a perfect gift in which to enclose yet another perfect gift for your special friend or loved one.

Red & Red (Small) Harlequin Bag

The smallest Pill Box harlequin is pictured here with a sweet velvet ribbon bow handle. We made the velvet ribbon double-sided (included in the pattern are detailed instructions) and then beaded it along the edges. Picture yourself carrying it while you are wearing a black pant-suit or a sassy little black dress to a holiday party or a night at the theater, or simply out and about wearing your most comfortable clothes. It hangs from your arm like a little red jewel.
