This purse is knit in one piece from the bottom up, holding two strands of yarn together; then the I-Cord handles are inserted into the “button holes”.

There are directions for two sizes; the large Char Purse dimensions are: 12” x 7” and 9.5” tall when closed. The handle has a 9.5” drop. The small version of the Char Purse dimensions are: 9.5” x 6.5” and 7.5 tall when closed; the handle drop can be between 9.5” to 12”. The handles could easily be made to your desired length.

The large version is a really great sized purse that can hold not only the necessities but a small knitting project as well.

This would be a project suitable for either a beginning knitter or a more advanced knitter.

Free Bonus: Everyone purchasing one of my purse patterns also receives the directions for making the optional purse organizer.

This purse is name in honor of my sister Charlotte…known to many as Char. She has been an inspiration to me.
