Felted "Hobo" Pattern

By Pipp's Purses

Your local knitting shops will tell you how applying beautiful and unique buttons are HOT HOT HOT!!!

The pattern requires a little over 600 yards of wool to create this chic sporty pattern.

PDF is emailed to you after payment has been received within 24 hours.

The pattern is for the BASIC SHAPE only. You decide what colors to use and other embellishments.
It is knit with size 10.5 strait, circular needles (optional) and double pointed 10.5's. This size needle will cause all of your stitches to disappear after you have felted your hobo. Most patterns use size 11 or larger leaving visible stitching. They also make you use two strand of yarn which really prices up your costs. I use only 1 strand with my patterns. They are just as strong and have a very nice "hand".

When people at art shows examine my handbags up close and I have to explain to them that these are actually hand knitted. They get this funny little confused look on their faces because if the lack of visible stitches.

The finished bag measures 4.5 inches deep by 8.5 inches long and about 9 inches high. I easily carry around my 2 average sized wallets, my cell phone, 3 mini photo albums and sunglasses within this purse.

I have written VERY detailed step by step instructions for this pattern including a stitch guide with an illustration. I am also always here for you via email!

I will soon have one of my original felting patterns featured in a nationally distributed knitting and crochet handbag book which will be available in the famous bookstores we all know and love!

It could also be used as a knitting project bag for small to medium sized projects!

You can find gorgeous buttons all over the place: at almost any craft store, fabric stores, thrift stores and on Ebay, of course! I love to find antique glass buttons.

Check out my ebay store for more original patterns and hand knit purses!!!!

If we use the regular mail, the pattern will have black and white pictures. (I can email a color picture for you to print. You need only to ask!!! You can also refer to my listing for color pictures.)This is a digital item in PDF and will be sent to your email within 24 hours of purchase...THANKS!
