This is the purse to take to the gambling hall or on a first date or wherever else a little extra luck is wanted. Horseshoes cascade down the sides of this knitted purse. Traditionally, horseshoes are hung over a doorway to bring luck to the entire home. Yet, such horseshoes are heavy and cumbersome to drag all over town. This purse lets the wearer bring the luck along.
The purse is knit entirely in the round, eliminating those annoying seams. Once you bind off, all there is left to do is weave in the loose ends and create a drawstring.
Pattern instructions include directions to knit the purse and to construct the lining.
