This cute and trendy bag is perfect to accompany you to the beach or anywhere else your travels take you. It is largely knit in garter stitch and features an anchor encircled by a portal, both of which are worked in stockinette, with the whole motif framed by classic nautical stripes.

Portal is worked in three parts, all knit flat and seamed at the end, making it an approachable project for someone new to intarsia. The bag is constructed with two anchor panels and a long garter stitch strap which also forms the sides and bottom of the purse.
