This cheerful zip up purse is quick to knit with chunky yarn. The knitting pattern uses only a few simple stitches: knit, purl, knit front and back increase and purl two together decrease.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, and sew seams. The purse has a zipper to close it along the top, so to finish your purse you will need to be familiar with sewing in zippers.

FINISHED SIZE: The finished purse is 16.5cm wide at the top, and 10cm deep.
