In the cold of winter, it’s fun to have your purse be just as cozy as your sweaters! The Herringbone Hobo Purse is knit with super bulky yarn in the herringbone stitch to create a thick and luxurious hand bag with plenty of room for you to store all of your essentials, plus your water bottle and maybe even a few books!

Knit flat from the bottom, the purse expands as you knit for a roomy depth of 12”/30.5 cm. After it’s sewn, the widest part of the bag is 17”/43 cm.

Optional instructions and materials include: handle, lining, and closure.
