This beautiful and stylish felted clutch bag is made seamlessly using a modular knitting technique.

The bag has a contrast edging, created by knitting an attached I-cord which gives the clutch bag an eye catching finish.

The variegated yarn creates wonderful eye catching colour blends and the simple envelope design closes with magnetic catches

This bag is knitted first in pure wool and then felted in an ordinary washing machine.
My clear and detailed pattern contains detailed instructions and photos to guide you step by step through, knitting, sewing up and felting your bag.
