Description

Make custom bags with the guidance of this one-of-a-kind eBook!

Custom handbags and handcrafted purses are hotter than ever—bags have become the trendy way to show off personal style. As knitters move away from the scarf, bags are replacing them as the most popular small project to make. Whether knitted, crocheted, or felted, there are endless ways to personalize and customize a bag. Following the success of Scarf Style, Wrap Style, and Lace Style—with more than 100,000 copies sold—the former editors of Interweave Knits have selected signature bag designs by top knitwear designers sure to be a hit with beginner and experienced knitters alike!

From a tiny pouch to carry an iPod to a generous tote based on nineteenth—century carpet bags to a felted messenger-style bag to a delicate purse with handles made of bracelets, knitters and crocheters will find loads of practical projects and inventive inspiration from twenty top knitwear designers, including Veronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, Mags Kandis, and Kristin Nicholas. Each project features gorgeous photographs and step-by-step instructions, and all techniques are explained in easy-to-understand detail.

In addition to 22 innovative patterns (19 knit and 3 crochet), the Design Notebook chapter examines the essence of the knitted bag and how to create a bag of your own. Learn ways to give a knitted or crocheted bag shape, depth, stability, handles, closures, and fasteners.

Whether you're an avid bag knitter or crocheter or you're creating one for the first time, the Bag Style eBook has all the inspiration, technique, and details you need.
