A more detailed picture of the yarn I used. I got it at Jo-Ann's and it is called "Sensations: Licorice" in purple. It was a thick/thin 100 % wool yarn made of 2 strands: 1 purple and 1 yellow/orange/pink/brown.

    Do you happen to have any left-over Purple Sensations Licorice yarn? I'm trying to locate a few skeins so I can finish a project. I had no idea the yarn would be discontinued and I've been searching for weeks. You're the first person I've come across that has actually used the color I'm searching for. Thanks!

    I'm sad to say that I haven't been able to get ahold of this particular yarn since I knit this bag. Which is a shame because I really liked it. I hope you find what your looking for out there somewhere. Good luck!

    Where did you get a pattern for this bag? It is absolutely gorgeous! Or did you just make up a pattern?

    I am a new knitter and have been getting JoAnn yarns on sale online, but it seems like it is hard to find patterns for them, and I am too much of a novice to know how to make substitutions for other patterns...

    I am getting some of this yarn (in another color, unfortunately), and would like to make a purse like this.

    Thanks for any help you can give!

    Thanks for the compliment. The bag was loosely based on one I had seen in the April 05 issue of Knit It! magazine.

    The basic idea for the pattern was this: I knit a garter stitch rectangle to make the bottom of the bag. I then picked up stitches along all the sides. I knit in stockinette stitch and then an inch from the top I added a string of fun fur yarn. I bound off then added some knitted handles.

    This is a similar pattern you can follow: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTsuki.html
    That version is knit from the top down.

    I hope this is a little helpful.
