Hand and Shoulder Bag
This stylish bag comes in two sizes. The large size can be worn over the shoulder and big enough to carry A4 notebooks, so it is perfect for day to day use. The smaller size has a shorter strap and is ideal for use as a handbag. Both sizes are knitted using TWO strands of yarn held together. This yields a stable, durable end product.
