Pompon purse pattern



I am so busy in these days. Okay, maybe I am lazy too. So time to post and time to finally share the pattern of my pompon purse. It was one of my first projects in the blog.



This is my actual favourite bag. I take it everywhere: working, shopping, to have a caffee with my friends. /Well, it is not practical at work, as long as it is a tiny little purse, so I have to take with an other bag too for the stuffs I need during the day :) 


Ps.: feel free to recommend me corrections in the pattern. I am still learning to write knitting patterns and I am not native english.



This is so easy to knit. Can be a perfect weekend project.
Sizes: 28 cm x 20 cm (11” x 8”)
 
Materials 
*      1 ball pompon yarn. My offer: Rico pompon yarn (109 yd/100 meter/20 dkg)
*   circular knitting needle 3,5 mm (U.S. 4)

Gauge
10 sts (5 balls) x 10 rows = 10 cm (4”)

Notice

It is easier to count in balls, than in stitches. If you are a beginner in knitting with this awesome yarn, check some videos on youtube. Will be so simple.


Pattern

Knit two stitches beetween balls to have that chunky look. This way it won’t stretch, if you put some heavier thing (e.g. your coin purse) into it.
Cast on 18 balls in a circle.
Place your stitch marker and be very careful not to twist the stitches.

  3. Your purse is great. Thanks for sharing. I bought some pom pom yarn at an after Christmas sale, was less than a dollar, but I had no idea what to do with it. Thanks for the great idea.
