Pattern description from One Skein: “I like to experiment with different types of yarn, playing with arrangements to create fresh and unusual combinations. That’s how I came up with the eclectic mix for this handbag, which I modeled after the shape of my favorite fabric purse. I used five different yarns, but you can use more or less, depending on what you have on hand.”
