Knit all stitches on all rows (garter stitches) using cotton tube yarn and No. 8 knitting needles. The purse is lined with a small, ready-made purse with a zip. The strap in the zip is made from faux leather paper. Yarn consumption is 65 g cotton tube yarn.
Guide step 1
Step 1.
It's important to knit a test square to test your tension. If there are too many stitches on a 10 cm test square, change to thinner needles and if there are too few stitches, change to thicker ones. Gauge: 10 x 10 cm = 12 stitches and 24 rows (garter stitches on all stitches and rows).
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Cast on 17 stitches on No. 8 circular knitting needles and knit plain stitches on all rows until the knitted piece measures 21 cm when lying flat. Cast off. Now the knitted piece measures 21.5 cm. Secure the ends on the back.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Sew the side seams from the outside using mercerised cotton yarn or four-doubled pieces of sewing thread: For a lovely hidden seam, sew as follows: Double over the purse and align the stitches at the sides . Sew with overcast stitches across the "valleys" between the stitches, and push the needle at an angle underneath to the next "valley". When pulling the thread, the joint becomes invisible.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
From the top of the purse, insert a ready-made purse with a zip (12.5 cm wide + 9 cm high). Open the zip and sew with invisible stitches from the outside in the “valleys” between the stitches.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
The inside stitches are made approx. 4 mm below the zip. Secure all ends.
Guide step 6
Step 6.
Strap: Cut a 1.5 cm wide x 10 cm long faux leather paper strip. Double over, make a hole with hole punch pliers and attach a small 12 mm keyring. Attach this onto the zip.
