What about surprising a crafty person for the next birthday with a knitting pattern, yarn and needles?
This listing is for an easy knitting pattern from an elegant little purse. It also gives instructions about felting after the knitting part.
Measurements after felting:
10" x 7" (bottom) and 8" x 2.5" (top)
You should be able to knit, purl, and decrease.
Please send me a convo if you have questions while using this pattern.
A pdf file of the pattern will be emailed to you within 24 hours of receiving payment.
