While I was working on this bag, my Dad sent me a series of photos from his recent Malaysian holiday.

Taken in a local bar, the photos feature Dad enjoying a Flaming Lamborghini… while his Lady Friend nervously watches from a few steps behind.

Flames were dancing the length of the bar in a way that I have NEVER seen before – and to be honest, I’m surprised that the man still has his eyebrows.

And so the Flaming Lamborghini bag was born. Knitted in a trio of vibrant colours with flames dancing around the top…


Bag is knit in one piece with three strands of yarn worked as one (or try a super bulky)

Pattern begins with the base which is knitted flat, then the body is worked in the round, finishing with the flame edging.

Height – 20 cm (8 in)
Width – 20 cm (8 in)
Depth - 7 cm (3 in)

Bag can be easily customized. For a deeper bag, cast on more sts. For a wider bag, work more rows for the garter st base. For a taller bag, work more rounds of stocking stitch for the body.

Try omitting the flame edging and just bind off for a rolled edge.
