Spring Basket Evening Bags With Tea Roses or Buttercups (No. 116)

This pattern is currently out of print but may still be available from your local yarn shop or one of the online stores.

The Spring/Summer 2007 Collection is characterized by a profusion of flowers. These bags are no exception. If you loved the shape of the Harlequin bag, you will love this bag as well. The largest bag is slightly tapered toward the bottom, giving it a basket-like quality, and the smallest bags are like small, round boxes. Each bag has a lid that is covered with flowers, producing a very girly profile. The custom Noni handle (hardware included so you can just clip them to the top of your bag and go right out the door!) adds a touch of whimsy to the formality of the bag, making this a perfect choice for all of your evening outings.

Pattern Difficulty Level: Intermediate. Requires knowledge of knitting in the round, knitting on circular and double-pointed needles, and short rows. Finishing is somewhat rigorous, requiring the use of a stiffener to give the bag shape and a zipper closure.
