From the Pattern Introduction: This cotton bag is knitted in summery shades and has a matching beaded purse that you can knit from the leftover yarn. The combination of purl stitch and rib together with the use of doubled yarn not only gives the bag its firm fabric, but also means it does not need to be lined.
