A stylish and chunky bag, designed to sit neatly under the arm, resting just above the hip of a 1.65m, 5ft 6”
tall woman or made like a satchel to carry A4 sheets of paper.
This bag is built by making the strap, which also works as the base and sides of the bag, then making two
panels, one of which is longer to act as the flap.
The bag is knitted using two strands of yarn together to make it really chunky so you can choose to use a
single colour or to mix two different colours. You could also try making the strap in a single colour and the
body of the bag in mixed colours or a contrasting colour.
Measurements: The handbag strap measures 33cm, 18” outside the bag and the bag itself approximately
25cm, 10” wide and 15cm, 6” deep. For the shoulder bag, the strap measures 98cm, 36” long outside the
bag, which is 3cm, 12” high and 25cm, 10” wide.
