The Color Block Purse is worked in log cabin style with blocks picked up and knit off those proceeding.

This pattern includes specific stitch by stitch directions to make the pictured bag, however, once the basic concept is grasped it can easily be customized to any size.

To achieve a sturdy bag yarn is held double throughout. Directions are given for an insert to keep the bottom of the bag from sagging.

An interesting button and optional ribbon are needed for closure.
