Knit  Crossbody Clutch
Intermediate | 29 min 8 sec
In this class, luscious yarn and hardware store findings come together to create a miniature knitted clutch. Cirilia begins the class by demonstrating an easy way to do a provisional cast on, then shows you how to create the body of the bag in the round. Before you know it, you’ll be binding off and attaching the metal closures. This project is a great way to use small quantities of special yarns that you’ve been saving for a rainy day. Plus, it’s made with both a detachable chain and a detachable wrist-strap, so it can be worn as a crossbody purse or used as a wrist clutch.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Set of US Size 5 double pointed needles or a couple sizes smaller than the ball band recommendation for your yarn
  • For bag flap - 1 skein (90yds) of worsted weight yarn (Cirilia uses Spincycle Yarns handspun in Helvetica)

  • Stitch markers

  • Crochet hook

I enjoyed your class and I am getting ready to start my first bag!!! Your instruction was very clear and fun to watch. Wish that it was more beginner friendly because I have no experience knitting socks. I'll check out more of your classes! Thank you!

Cute little bag in a simple pattern. Lighter yarn and greater contrast between sections of the bag would have made it easier to see the sections and how they are constructed.
