So I have finally managed to get the pattern written up for my art deco bag!

Cant believe it has taken me so long, well I guess we have been doing loumms year of socks and random mitts!

So here it finally is:


crysler 001

Pattern: Chrysler by loutheperson

Yarn: Drops Eskimo, 100% wool, Colour 22, 3-4 x 50g

Needles: 8 mm, 16 ‘ circular needle

It all began with my love of  art deco and my desire to design my own bag, the two merged together and this is what was born!

It is knit in the round with the bottom grafted together at the end. The straps are added seperatly. The big chunky buttons give it texture and are used to fastern the bag together with the knitted clasp. It is a really quick easy knit, I did my second one in just a couple of days!

I have added a lining to mine as the fabric was just too amazing not to use for this project so I will be adding a sort of tutorial soon on how to do it.

You can download the pattern here and here as a ravelry download.

Please note that while we’ve done our best to make sure there are no errors, we can’t guarentee there aren’t any. If you find something that looks amiss, get in touch! We’ll be posting updates if we find any, but we are always grateful for feedback of any sort.

    That is just beautiful! It is completely different from all the other cabled bags, and one of the most gracefully designed tiny bags I have ever seen. Well done you!

    I would love to try this pattern, it looks gorgeous! Unfortunately I cannot figure out what ‘M’ and ‘b’ mean. I am an experienced knitter but I have not followed a pattern instruction in English before – English is my second language.
    Any chance you could explain?
    Many thanks
