Aspen Yarn Kits for Knit and Crochet
I’ve been collecting bags and purses for as long as I can remember. My closet is stuffed with them. I love unique shapes, colors and textures. Mostly, I love being able to create something myself. My idea for the shape of this bag came from scrolling fashion handbags on Pinterest and being awed by all the possibilities for shape. Once I saw this Aspen yarn in the Lodge colorway, I KNEW that it was meant to be a handbag.
You’ll need 2 skeins of Mary Maxim Aspen for this project in your favorite Aspen Color. Wait! Go ahead and order 2 in every color, this is such a fun pattern you'll want to make more than one. This handbag works up quickly and is addictive! It’s also a great gift item. I’ve already made 2, and I won’t lie. I ordered enough yarn to make 4 more. And I’m not one to remake my own designs if I don’t have to!
