Long Loom Purse
This purse is knit with just over 1/2 skein Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick using all the pegs on the pink loom, using a "Figure-8" stitch for 36 rows. The knit rectangle is folded in half, and side seams are sewn. The purse opening has one row of single crochet, with a loop included in the middle of one side for the closure. I used a large bead to complete the closure. The strap is a 4-peg I-cord also made on the pink loom.
If I were to make this purse for myself, I would make a shorter, beaded strap, as the 6" square purse is too pretty and dainty for the bulky I-cord strap. I would also put a lining in it so heavy contents don't stretch the knitting out of shape.
