Smile and nod at your new favorite handbag. Worked in chic Linen Stitch, this eye-catcher looks almost like houndstooth. With three exterior pockets and another on the inside it’s as functional as it is elegant. In 100% cotton it’s machine washable and dryable. A plastic canvas bottom hidden between the knit bag and lining helps give it structure, and is also washable and dryable.

Note: pattern has been updated to ask for O-rings rather than D-rings. D-rings proved unwilling to stay in position, and slipped onto their corners (see the left side of the strap in the first photo). O-rings will work better, as they’ll always be in the same position. Apologies for any inconvenience.
