I have been seeing the bulky cotton yarn in stores for a while now, and have been trying to figure out what to make with it other than washcloths and hot pads. Then I saw this beautiful round purse, and knew exactly what I had to make. I love how thick and sturdy the bag is. You could carry around text books in it if you wanted to! I think I will stick to bringing more yarn with me everywhere I go.


diameter - 13” (33 cm)
strap length – 22” (56 cm)
depth – 2.5” (7 cm)


Bernat Handicrafter Chunky
I used Grey and Robin’s Egg for the pictured purse
I used 3/4 of the Grey ball, and only a very small amount (60 g, 2 oz) of the Robin’s Egg. If you wanted to do this all in one color, 1 400 g ball would be enough. Or you could make a second purse and just reverse the colors.
you could also use regular worsted (#4) cotton held triple to make this purse
