FO ~ Knitting Needle Knitting Bag

My Berry Sweet Knitting Bag

Pattern: Knitting Needle Knitting Bag from

Designer: Pam Allen

Yarn: Patton's Shetland Chunky Tweeds in Deep Red (3 skeins)

Needles: US 8 Options, 32"cord

Started: October 5, 2007
Completed: October 17, 2007

Modifications: Used seed stitch for handles instead of garter stitch.
Also used wooden knitting needles with decorative clay sheep and a set of sheep stitch markers for decoration.
Bought these from Designs by Tami on Etsy.

What I Learned: I had never knitted the berry stitch before and it was very easy to do.
Video on this page showing how to do the berry stitch
which is also called the blackberry, bramble or trinity stitch.

Here are the instructions on how I made my lining...

  4. Oh my goodness, I love what you've done with this purse! I'm following the same pattern, only using a worsted weight yarn in emerald green and will line it with a square scarf. I also had planned to do the handles in seed stitch. I love the idea of using knitting needles with something cute on the ends! I may have to borrow that idea! Your purse is perfectly delightful!
