Watermelon Purse

Introducing my Watermelon Purse knitting pattern. The watermelon slice is 16.5 cm wide and 10 cm tall. All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. The knitting pattern uses a few simple stitches: knit, purl, knit front and back increase and purl two together decrease. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. To finish your purse you will need to sew in a zipper.


  • Instructions for making the purse.
  • A materials list and recommended yarns.
