Nashville Bag by Lavender Hill Knits

***Please note that this listing is not for the finished item. This listing is for the instructions on making the bag****

This bag was pictured in The Knitter magazine issue #38, published in the UK!!!

Your purchase includes pattern support - just send me an email or convo and I'll be happy to answer your questions or help you if you get stuck.

The Nashville Bag is the perfect little bag to go with your little black dress, sundress, or even a pair of jeans.
It is the perfect size to hold essentials: lipstick, cell phone, iPod, wallet, make-up and more. You can tuck it into a larger tote when you go to work, take it out when you are ready to go to lunch or out after work and not have to bring your huge tote.
The Nashville Bag is fun to knit and it is amazing to see it transform from an oddly shaped piece of knitting into a beautiful ruffled purse after a few minutes in the washing machine! This purse is great in a basic go-to color like charcoal gray or make one in a fun bright color to go with a special outfit. I hope you enjoy creating yours☺

Materials needed:
440 yards of 100% wool worsted weight yarn, 75 yards of contrast color if you would like to make a bag with a different color for the base (using the same brand of yarn for both base and bag is suggested)

If you wish to line your bag:
1/3 yard of fabric or piece approximately 25” x 17”
