Out On The Town
This lovely beaded bag (46 size 6/0 or 5/0 beads are needed) makes a wonderful fairly quick bag. The knitting is easy and for fun, the beading is thrown in. You can work this bag without beads and still get the same textured pattern by purling the stitch instead of beading it. You will need a size 11/12 crochet hook for the beading.
We have had two classes featuring this bag (22 people) and it went well. The students caught on quickly and had fun with it.
The purse frame is about 5" wide and can be purchased at Jo-Ann stores. It's called the Everything Mary "Large Purse Frame".
