Additional Materials
Approximately 12 inches of waste yarn in any other color 8 inches black Velcro fastener Black sewing thread and needle
20 stitches x 24 rows = 4 inches x 4 inch [10 cm square] in garter stitch (knit every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.



With A, cast on 40 stitches.
Rows 1-6 Knit.
Row 6 Thread the waste yarn into the large-eyed blunt needle and run it along the needle that is currently holding the stitches.

As you knit the next row, the yarn will transfer onto your working needle down the center of the row of stitches.

This is the marker that you will use later in the construction to make it easy to pick up the stitches from this row.
Rows 7-8, Knit
Rows 8-24 Change to B, knit
Rows 25-32 Change to A, knit.

Bind off all stitches.

Cut end, leaving a tail of about 8 inches (this will be used to sew the edges of the purse together)

Return to row 6 (the row with the waste yarn running through it).

Using the yarn as a marker, pick up the stitches.

After they are on your needle, pull the waste yarn out.
Rows 1-2 With A, knit.

Rows 3-18 Change to B, Knit
Rows 19-26 Change to A, knit.

Bind off all stitches.

Cut end, leaving a tail of about 8 inches (this will be used to sew the edges of the purse together)

Cut the Velcro in half, lengthwise, so that it is 1/2 inch [.6 cm] wide.

Position one half on the inside top edge of one side and stitch in place using the sewing needle and thread..

Place the other half of the Velcro on the other side and stitch that in place.

Thread the tail of the Glitterspun yarn into the large-eyed blunt needle and sew each side of the purse shut.

If you are planning on carrying liquid make-up, a snack-size Zip-lock style sandwich bag will exactly fit inside and provides extra waterproofing!!
