Purse/Pocket bag knitting kit - 7" x 7" - DK Pure New British wool 
This is a kit for you to knit a purse or pocket bag which measures approximately 7 inches x 7 inches when completed.  It includes 75 grms of DK yarn and a pattern.  Please make your yarn choice from the drop down list.  To make the purse/pocket bag you will also need size 3.25mm & 4mm (UK 10 & 8) needles, a cable needle, a tapestry needle to sew up the seams and two 3/4" (18mm) buttons to fasten the flap.  The bag is knitted as a flat piece and then the side seams are sewn up after completion of the knitting.  It is shown as a purse but there is sufficient yarn in the kit to make either a twisted or plaited  cord to use  as a handle.    The yarns have all been spun at the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall using personally selected fleeces from local flocks of rare breed sheep that are owned by either the National Trust or a local smallholder.    You will find a fuller description of the yarns in their individual listings.   
For the kit, I have chosen 3 hard wearing yarns and 1 Shetland blend yarn but you are free to choose any of the DK yarns listedon this site.  Please let me know which yarn you require and I will do a custom order for you.  I can also supply a 100grm  hank as a custom order if your wish to make a longer or wider bag.  The price for a custom kit including 100grms of yarn will be £10.50.
The yarn choices are:
1. Norfolk Horn - Off White DK
2. Portland /Manx blend - Beige DK
3.  Manx loaghtan - Mid Brown DK
4.  Shetland/Castlemilk Moorit  - Beige DK  - a blend of White Shetland & Mid Brown Castlemilk Moorit fleeces
In order to keep your purse or pocket bag looking nice, always wash gently by hand using warm water and wool wash liquid.  Do not rub or use agitation. Rinse in same temperature water then squeeze out excess water by rolling in a towel.  Dry flat away from direct heat.
The pattern is my original design and is intended for personal use only.  Please do not reproduce or sell this pattern or any products created from it.
