Created using the linen, half-linen and stockinette stitches, this handbag organically shapes itself without the need for any increasing or decreasing. The linen stitch tightens up the top and sides, while the stockinette stitch provides for a nice curved bottom. The colors and textures of Manos Del Uruguay are beautifully displayed, especially Mermaid which inspires an escape to the sea. Lining the handbag is a must, but it’s well worth it!
