This small pineapple purse is my updated pattern for small bags called reticules that were popular in the Victorian era. I have found instructions in several 19th century knitting books and have used them, along with photos of bags made in the same time period, to create a pattern with instructions, materials, and tools that are more comfortable for today’s knitters.
