The Clutch You'll Never Give Up
Pattern description from One Skein: “Forget bulky bags and purses - this felted clutch is big enough to carry the essentials without getting in the way. It is knitted in the round with bulky yarn, then felted down to a compact size. An assortment of buttons - I used a mixture of vintage and modern ones - gives it a unique personality. Short on buttons? Check out antique or thrift stores for unusual finds, or see page 124 for my favorite sources.”
Finished Size: About 13” (33 cm) wide and 10.75” (27.5 cm) tall before felting; 10” (25.5 cm) wide and 6.27” (16 cm) tall after felting.
