Stitch and Chat’s First Knitalong

As many of us are nearing the point of starting a new project, we’ve talked about making the same bag. Claudia introduced us to this book, and the bag she picked, the Daffodil bag.

I don’t have a picture of the bag yet, however, it is a stylish medium sized purse that (depending on the yarn) could be a holiday purse or everyday purse. The bag is knit with a sparkly yarn in the book.

If you’re interested in joining the kal, click the book title to order the book from Amazon: 25 More Bags to Knit: Beautiful Bags in Stylish Colors . The link doesn’t allow for searching inside the bag.

The pattern calls for a flat, cotton, ribbon that gets 3 stitches/1″, and the pattern requires approximately 308 yards. The bag was pictured with bamboo handles and we could order those.

Several Yarn Options:
Crystal Palace Glam
Crystal Palace Deco Ribbon
Tahki Capri Print
Tahki Timo
Katia Venecia
Loopdloop Fern (I’m leaning toward this one)

I haven’t set a date to start yet, I want to give everyone a chance to order the book, and find the yarn they’d like to use.
When you decide what you’d like to make it in, we can talk about where to get it.
