This pattern requires 2 skeins of yarn, 1 skein of each color.

Purse width: 7 inches/17.8 cm
Purse length: 9 inches/22.9 cm

The deceivingly complex look of weaving is obtained through a handful of simple techniques. The main body is knit in garter-stitch strips. A provisional cast-on and 3-needle bind-off eliminate any need for seaming, excluding the tacking down of edges.
