dolly bag

I got this kit for subscribing to the Rowan magazines. I always love the little gift kits they give out, but this is the first time I've actually knit one! Two skeins of handknit dk is all it took to make this sweet little purse. It's too tiny for my needs, but is destined to become a sweet bag for wee one to put her toddler treasures in. I enjoyed the cable pattern a great deal and am looking forward to making more of these for friends' little girls as gifts. (The second version has four added stitches to leave purls between the cables and diamonds at their widest points and it still only used two skeins of handknit dk!)
