This was a fun project. I found the pattern at ‘Michael’s’; it is one of those freebies that hang on the shelves in the yarn department. I used a heathery purple chenille that was picked up at a yard sale. The pattern is by ‘Caron’. It is a basic rectangle knit in stocking knit. When you want to create a fold, just purl that row. The strap is an I-cord. This can be any length you want. This is a project you can finish in a weekend. I love it for when I go on walks. It is just the right size for my cell phone, sunglasses and my MP3. I throw it over my shoulder and head out the door! A sassier sight cannot be found!
