Silken Byways Handbag

Silken Byways Handbag-frontTraditional saris, woven with heavy silk and gold and silver cloth, are highly treasured and worn during special occasions and festivities within the Indian culture.

This vibrant and somewhat free spirited handbag is created using yarn made from recycled sari remnants…a wonderful way to enjoy the exquisite beauty of sari silk, with our more casual western ways in mind.

 

Loom:  Adjustable Hat Loom, 28 pegs in every other hole.

Yarn:  Approx 90 yards/143 g of bulky weight recycled sari silk ribbon yarn. Sample used SilkIndian Ribbon Yarn (1.5 skeins in the multi) 60 yds/100 g.

Notions:   knitting tool, scissors, yarn needle, row counter, large decorative button, one tassel, one strap (sample uses a curtain tie-back cord).

Gauge: Approx 8 sts x 12.5 rows= 4 inches

Size:  7” high x 7” wide x 3.5” deep at base.

Abbreviations

Approx: approximately
sts: stitches
CO: cast on
EW: E-wrap stitch
KO: knit off
WY: working yarn
BO: bind off

Pattern Notes:
All knits are worked as E-wrap stitches throughout.  When working an EW with the ribbon yarn, be sure to wrap and knit off just one peg at a time.  Leave extra looseness in each wrap after knitting off, so that the following rows won’t be too tight to manage.

This pattern uses a Drawstring Cast On for ease in gathering the bottom of the bag.  Please see this helpful web tutorial for more details:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkTsM3WjKQU

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Set loom to work in the round using 28 pegs in every other hole.  Going in a COUNTER CLOCKWISE direction, Drawstring CO to all 28 pegs.

Rows 1-24:  Work very loose EW on all 28 pegs.

Row 25:  Basic BO pegs 1-14, EW pegs 15-28.

Row 26:  EW pegs 28-15.

**Note: The WY should now be on the left side of the pegs being worked. If it’s not, simply switch the diagram below to work as if a mirror opposite.

  

Row 27:  Using the peg diagram above, work the 2 left side decreases as follows:

  • *Move the loop from peg 2 to peg 3 and KO.
  • *Move the loop from peg 1 to peg 2.
  • *Basic BO peg 1.

*EW knit the remaining pegs in line. 

Silken Byways Handbag- close up edgeRow 28:  Basic BO first peg of row.  EW knit the remaining pegs in line.

Rows 29-33:  Repeat Rows 27 & 28.  When done, there will only be 3 pegs with loops remaining.

Row 34:  Basic BO first peg in row. EW and KO 4 times on peg 2 only.  Move loop from peg 2 to peg 3, KO.  Trim yarn and pull through loop.  Cinch tightly.

 

FINISHING

Pull tail at CO edge to gather until there remains a 2” opening.  Stitch this 2” opening closed so that it will lay flat and serve as the bag bottom.

Weave in all ends and trim any long threads from the ribbon yarn’s natural frays.  Feel free to stretch the bag and asymmetrical flap into shape.  The firm nature of the ribbon yarn allows for some adjustment of the knitting into the preferred form.

Stitch the button in place at the bag front just inside the button loop, along with the tassel, and handles of choice.

If desired, the bag can be lined, or it can be left in its natural state.

  • Is it possible to use any other type of loom? My hat loom pegs broke!

  • Oh no, Erin! I’m so sorry to hear that! :P This is one of the big reasons the pattern talks about making your stitches *very* loosely. But, as for another loom to use this project on, any one of a large gauge would do. Perhaps a loom with fixed pegs would be better for you. You might even try it on a Zippy, but you’d most likely need to line the bag after you’ve completed the knitting, as the stitches may have extra spaces between them. Best of wishes for your success! :)

  • Hi Erin, I would let the company know about the issue of your hat loom by email to info@knittingboard.com. They will be happy to discuss this with you.

  • Can the sashay yarn be used for this pattern?

  • Hi Kerri! :) Yes, the Sashay yarn held all bunched up as one strand of thick yarn would be a great match for this project…terrific idea! :)

  • Can you use the All in one loom to make this bag

  • Hi Margaret :)

    Well, you can use the All-n-One for this, but you would need to change the yarn used, as the silk ribbon used in the pattern would be too thick for the gauge of that loom. Then, of course, you may wish to change the number of pegs used and rows worked so that you end up with the size bag that you wish to have. ;) I would highly recommend making a swatch first and then doing a little math to determine the desired numbers.

    Best wishes! :)

Ipad Bag Open Prefelted

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Assembly: using the mattress stitch, seam the icord to the cast on edge of the oven mitt. Create a small loop with the remaining icord (to use for hanging)

FELTING INSTRUCTIONS 

The magic in this knitting happens when you wash the untreated wool with hot water and the item shrinks, making the stitches smaller, and the fabric thicker.

You will need the following:

1 pillow case with a zipper

Safety Pin

2-3 jeans (to use in agitation)

Eucalan Woolwash or Baby Shampoo

Towels (to squeeze out excess water).

Top Loader Washer

INSTRUCTIONS

Place all items to be felted inside the zippered pillow case. Secure the zipper with the safety pin (to ensure the pillow case doesn’t open).

Set washer to Small load, and Hot temperature.

Place 1 tsp of Eucalan Woolwash or 1 tsp of Baby Shampoo.

Place the jeans inside the washer.

Place the pillow case inside the washer.

Start the washer. Check the washer again BEFORE it goes into the spin cycle. If the item is not the desired size, re-start the washer from the beginning (simply turn the knob back to the beginning of the wash). Place the pillow case back in the washer and let it go through another cycle, stopping the washer BEFORE it was through the spin cycle. Check again. If not desired size, repeat. *The above samples took 3 cycles.

Once the items are the desired size, remove the items from the pillow case. Take them to the sink. If you used Eucalan Woolwash, rinsing is not required. If you used Baby Shampoo, rinse in cold water. Do not wring the excess water. Place a towel on a flat surface, then place the felted item on top of the towel. Pat dry as much as you can.

Set the items to air dry, away from the sun. The sun may discolor the yarn.

  • What is psso? It does not explain that in the abbreviations.

  • Sorry this is off the beaten path but are there any patterns for children mittens on the sock loom 2? I would love to make some for winter for charities. Sue Kreitzer

  • Hello so in reading the pattern, the knits are the alternate to the purl and not a ewrap. Am I right?

  • correct

  • As of right now, we don’t have any children mitt patterns. We will work on that for the upcoming winter. Thank you for the suggestion.

  • Pass over the skipped stitch

Market Bag

Farmers Market BagA super expandable bag to carry all the goodness from the Farmers Market back home. The perfect part of this bag is that the bottom of the bag is worked completely in stockinette stitch to prevent the small items from falling through the bottom of the bag; the open eyelets of the bag’s body allows the fruits and veggies plenty of air.

  • I am using the Tadpole and do not understand how to get started. I have the Kb A fine gauge knitting board and want to make a Bear. Can anyone help me get started?

  • Love this , but how big is it. ? can it be made larger? :)

  • It is about 22 inches long and width, it expands quite a bit.

  • Any tips on the k2tog? The stiches seem really tight especially when moving the left stich to the right peg.

  • When I do my k2tog, I am usually working from right to left (clockwise on the knitting loom), therefore, I move my right stitch to the left, then I knit the peg. My only suggestion is to work the previous row loosely.

  • When you have the line
    Next round: *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round.
    Does this mean that the 1st peg should be yo’ed and the next peg should be k2tog, or does that mean to do these two things to each peg? I really want to make this bag for my sisters wedding present and need to know the answer as soon as possible. Thank you.

  • Yes. Move stitch from the first peg to the second peg, ewrap first peg, then knit peg 2; repeat the process all around.

  • Thank you, Isela, I actually watched a YouTube video last night and figured it out, I was anxious to get started last night, but now I might pull all the rows out and start over, because I do not have the AIO loom so I have been improvising with the MS loom and the configuration seems too tight on the ends to really make work, so going to try to make the loom an oval and see if that works better. Next question though, have you worked with the MS loom, would you suggest I use the bigger pegs and space them out more? Any suggestions on this?

  • Somehow I don’t believe this only takes 300 yards of yarn to complete, since I have already used 300 yards of yarn and only have 7 inches of the bag done. Maybe I am being too tight, but seriously, just brought another 300 yards to finish.

  • I only used 3 skeins for the body and a little bit more of a 4th skein for the handle, each skein is about 95 yds.

  • This is very interesting. Maybe the difference has to do with adaptation, of using the MS loom as opposed to the AIO loom, because when I started I didn’t have the AIO loom. Maybe the gauging is different by that much. I am using the Sugar n’ Cream 95 yard skeins of yarn, it has just taken me a lot more yarn to complete. It looks really cool though so far though. I really like it, just that didn’t anticipate would take this much yarn so didn’t buy enough of same dye lot yarn so now having to weave the brighter and different dye lot stuff into the project. I will post a picture when I am done of what mine looks like, and maybe you can tell me the difference between the two. Thank you for your help.

  • Ok, I think I figured out the difference, I am making stitches that are or probably were a lot tighter than yours are for the bag, I just added in the other dye lot and I thought I cut enough of original dye lot to complete the two rounds to complete the stitch and the yarn only made it half way around for first round of the stitch.

  • That is very interesting. Are you using the same number of pegs? I will inquire to have the bag weighed and redo the math, but I know that I only purchased that many skeins (from the receipt I have).

  • Here are some pictures of what my project looks like at this point. I am using the MS loom and not the AIO loom that you do for this project, but that shouldn’t make that much difference, I think the gauge is very close if not the same as each other. I did have to add 4 pegs to make the configuration work better, but that doesn’t seem that it would make that big a difference either, not of like 300 yards of yarn to make the same bag. Ok so I can’t seem to post pictures here. Maybe I will try to send the pictures to you through Facebook, just so you know they are coming.

  • Ok, Isela, I figured out with the help of some people from Facebook looming groups, a second pair of eyes, what happened, and why I was using so much more yarn than you, the two rows that make up the 16 inches, I was doing them backwards, I was doing the k2tog 1st, and the knit row last, and not doing the yarn over part at all. That was what was making mine tighter and taking so much yarn. Thanks for your help though, and sorry for any problem…

  • Oh, I see! Yeah, that will use it more yarn. I am so glad you figured it out. I wish the comments could upload pictures, it would make it easier to see.

  • And now, you have an original bag!!! :)

  • That is right!!! When I am done, I will have an original bag, and I think that is kind of cool… Thanks to you though in a lot of ways, because I did look at your pattern and miss read it, if it weren’t for me finding your pattern and thinking it was cool, and then reading it backward, I wouldn’t have created this original pattern… Thanks again…

Friday Free Pattern :: Woven Evening Purse

Lindsay-Obermeyer-woven-evening-bag

Weaving on your knitting board is simple and can produce fabulous fabrics like the one featured in this vintage-inspired, glamorous evening purse.  I’ve lined it and added a button closure and beaded handle for added practicality.

Pattern Information:
Knitting Loom:
28″ Knitting Board with Peg Extenders

Yarn: Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour in Lapis
Ribbon: Offray 1/8″ Gold Metallic Ribbon, 15ft each spool (6 spools) and Simplicty 5/16″ Gold Metallic Trim, 6ft each spool (3 spools)
Beads: 7 round “Wedding Cake” lampwork beads in transparent teal (Indian, not the original Venetian), 80 size 8/0 gold silver-lined beads, 10 gold hexagon beads (NOTE: I’ve been collecting beads for 30 years, these were from my private stash. They are still available, but you may need to shop for them on eBay, Etsy, or at an online bead company if you want the same exact colors.)
Other Supplies:
2 pieces of lightweight Phoomph from Coats and Clark, 2 pieces of Forest Green Craft Felt (9″ x 12″), Fabric Glue, 1″ diameter gold metallic button with a shank, crimping tubes (2), bead stringing wire.

Tools:
size N crochet hook, size F crochet hook, tapestry needle, scissors, ruler / tape measure, crimping pliers, flat knitting bobbin or weaving stick shuttle, awl / crewel needle, cutting pliers.

Finished Size:
19″ x 8″ (flat),   6.5″ x 8″ (finished size without handle)

Weaving Technique:  Tabby / Plain Weave – equal amounts of weft and warp are visible
Row 1: Weave under the first warp thread and over the next.  Repeat across the loom.
Row 2: Weave over the first warp thread and under the next. Repeat across the loom.
Repeat Row 1 and 2, ending with Row 2.

Terminology
Warp – the vertical lines of yarn you weave in an out of on the loom.
Weft  – the horizontal line of yarn that you weave in and out of the warp.

1.     Add Loom Extenders
Add one extender to the bottom of the loom and the other one hole in from the other side.

Lindsay-Obermeyer-Woven-Evening-Purse-Detaile2.     Warp Up the Loom
Tie the end of the yarn to the first peg on the peg extender leaving a 5 inch tail.  Run the yarn to the peg opposite it on the other peg extender.  Repeat this process until you have warped the entire loom.  Tie the warp to the last peg and leave a 5″ tail.

3.     Begin Weaving
Wind your ribbon around the shuttle (knitting or weaving).  Weave under the first warp thread and over the next one.  Be sure to leave a tail at the beginning. Repeat the under / over pattern across the loom.  When you are finished, proceed in the other direct. Lindsay-Obermeyer-Woven-Evening-Purse-DetaildWrap the ribbon around the first peg on the vertical edge. Weave over the first warp thread and under the next one.  When you have returned to your starting point, weave in the tail, tucking it to the back.  Keep going in this manner for the next 13″.  As you run out of ribbon, be sure to end at one side or the other, not in the middle.  Wind more ribbon around the shuttle and continue.

HINT:  If you find that your fabric is bowing in the center, weave the next row as normal, but wrap it around the nearest beg with ribbon already wound around it.  Repeat as go back.  This will straighten your line.  You may need to proceed with this trick every few inches throughout your weaving.

4.  Alternate Gold Ribbon with Gold Trim
For the final 6″ you will alternate weaving a gold metallic ribbon with a gold trim. Keep both tidy and tangle free by winding them on separate shuttles.

Lindsay-Obemeyer-Woven-Evening-Purse-Wrapping-Around-Pegs     Lindsay-Obermeyer-Woven-Evening-Purse-Detail-Finished-Weaving

5.     Remove Fabric from the Loom and Bind Off the Edges

 

6.     Add Lining
Lindsay-Obermeyer-Woven-Evening-Bag-DetailbTrim tails on the back of fabric, leaving only a 1/4″. Measure your fabric. Cut the Phoomph to size.  I used one piece of Phoomph for the base of the purse and another for the flap. Trim the Phoomph to have rounded corners at the flap and base.  Cut felt to width, but allow it to remain 12″ long.  Cut the 2nd piece of felt to cover the remainder.  Peel away one side of the Phoomph and press firmly to the back side of your fabric. Peel away the other side, position the felt and press firmly.

7.     Crochet Together the Edges of the Purse
Fold the ribbon section in half, leaving the flap free.  With the yarn and F crochet hook, slip stitch the edges closed.  To do so, you will insert the hook at the base, running the hook below the bound edges.  When you have completed one side.  Proceed to the other.  Weave in all tails.

8.     Add a Beaded Handle
Cut a 20″ piece of beading wire.  Poke a hole with the awl a 1/4″ in from both sides at the base of the flap.

Thread the wire through the hole, leaving a 4″ tail.   Thread five 8/0 gold beads and a lampwork bead, another 8/0 bead and a crimp bead onto the long end of the wire.  With the tail, thread thirteen 8/0 gold beads onto the tail and then run it through the lampwork bead, gold bead and crimp.  Use the crimping pliers to crimp the bead.  Trim away the excess tail with the cutting pliers.  Add two 8/0 gold beads.  *Add a lampwork bead, two 8/0 beads, a hexagon bead, two 8/0 beads.* Repeat pattern from * to * and ending with a lampwork bead.  Thread two 8/0 gold beads, a hexagon bead, two 8/0 beads, a crimp bead, an 8/0 bead, a lampwork bead and thirteen 8/0 beads.  Poke the wire through the hole in the fabric on the other side of the flap and thread a final five 8/0 gold beads.  Run the wire through the lampwork bead and up to the crimp bead.  Pull until the beads are tightened up.  Crimp the bead with the crimping pliers. Trim away excess wire.

9.     Finishing Touches
Fold over the edge at the top of the flap and glue down with fabric glue.  Allow to dry.

Add a crocheted loop.  Measure to find the center of the flap edge.  With the F crochet hook, fasten on the yarn with a slip stitch a 1/2″  from the left of center point.  Leave a 4″ tail.  Chain 8.  Slip stitch to the fabric a 1/2″ to the right of the center point.  Knot and weave in tails.  Fold flap in place.  Place button at center point where flap meets base of purse.  Sew on button.

  • That looks amazing.

  • Thank you, Karen! – Lindsay

  • Do you remember how many yards per spool for these ribbons? That way, if I can’t find the exact ones, I may be able to substitute.

  • Thank you for catching that omission! I’ve added the yardage to the pattern.

  • I quite enjoyed browsing through this. I reckon it’s going to go really good with the handmade stuff I found at etsy.com/shop/FlosCaeli I purchase all of my headbands, necklaces, etc there.

  • Hi Clarinda,

    What are you intending to make a woven headband or ear warmer would be great! You’ve given me an idea!

This cute eyeglass case will keep your eyeglasses safe from scratches.  Make one for the purse and another for the
car.  The case also makes a great gift!

Skill Level
Intermediate

Knitting Loom:
28″ Knitting Loom with Peg Extenders

Yarn:
Lion Brand Recycled Cotton in Seagrass, Lion Brand Recycled Cotton in Marine

Tools
knit hook, size E crochet hook, tapestry needle, large button.

Finished Size
3.5” by 6.25”

1. Assemble the loom. Attach the loom extenders one section apart.

MKLawrie-Eyeglass-Case-All-in-One-Loom-3    MKLawrie-Eyeglass-Case-All-in-One-Loom-4

2. Warp the loom. Holding two strands of the marine recycled cotton yarn together, tie the yarn to a corner peg. Wrap the yarn around the next peg to one side of the corner peg, then around the next peg on the other side of the corner peg. Continue to work back and forth, wrapping the yarn around every peg. Tie the yarn to the last peg and cut leaving a 5″ tail.

3. Begin weaving. Turn the loom. Holding two strands of yarn together, one strand in Marine Recycled Cotton and one of each color, tie the yarn to the corner peg. Use a crochet hook or the knit hook to weave under then over the warp. Repeat the process, this time weaving over the strands you went under, then under the strands you went over. Continue until all of the pegs have been filled. Leave a long tail, cut the yarn, and tie it to the corner peg.

4. Taking it off of the loom. Using a single strand of Seagrass Recycled Cotton yarn, make a slip knot and place it on your crochet hook. Start at a corner peg, and work across the longer side first. Use the crochet hook to lift the weft off the peg, and onto the crochet hook. Yarn over the hook and pull through all the loops on the hook. There should now be one loop of yarn on the crochet hook and one peg bound off. Lengthen the loop on the crochet hook slightly, then bind off the the next peg in the same manner. Continue until all the pegs have been bound off and the woven piece has been removed from the pegs. Leave the loop of yarn on the crochet hook. Do not cut the yarn.

5. Add a button loop. Insert the crochet hook into the center of the first bound off stitch, yarn over and pull the loop through. Flip the work over to the back side, and work across the shorter side that you just bound off. Insert your hook between the next two bound off stitches, under the two threads. (See photo.) Yarn over the hook and pull through, yarn over again and pull through both loops on the hook; one single crochet stitch created. Repeat until you have created 8 single crochet stitches. Yarn over pull through; one chain stitch created. Make chain stitches until it is about twice the width of your button. Continue making single crochet stitches as you were before until you reach the corner. Cut and knot the yarn. Weave in all your yarn ends.

6. Seam the edges. Flip the fabric back over and fold the bottom half up 3.25” to create the body of the eyeglass case. Using the bind off stitches as a guide, sew up both sides of the eyeglass case with a tapestry needle and a single strand of yarn. Cut and knot the yarn. Weave in your ends.

7. Sew on the button. Use a single strand of yarn and the tapestry needle to sew on the button. Knot the yarn on the back side to secure, and weave in the ends.
