A pretty late Edwardian bag to hang on the wrist and hold the ball or spool of wool or cotton when knitting or crocheting. This is the sort of little work bag that eventually evolved into the modern handbag. The basket shaped bag is made of mercerized cotton in in a simple shell pattern. The stitches are worked closely enough that no lining is required, and the bag big enough to be used as a modern wristlet. No actual size was given for either hook or cotton. If worked in size 10 crochet cotton with a C/2 (2.75mm) steel crochet hook, the bag will hold a ball of yarn about the size of a baseball or average size grapefruit. Finer thread and a smaller hook will make a smaller bag, worsted yarn and a H/5 (5.5mm) hook makes a generously sized bag for larger projects.
