  1. Great! Thanlks for posting this – I’ve been wanting to try this technique and I think this will make a super project. Thanks again.

  2. Wow, that’s super CUTE! Thanks for this pattern. I too think it will be a great intro to this colorwork technique. Can’t wait to give it a go!

  3. I want to learn colorwork. this is perfect! However I can’t get the pattern when I click the link to instructions. Thanks, Linda

  4. I love the pattern and design! I can’t wait to start it. I looked through my cotton stash and have two OLDER skeins of Rowan Denim Blue, but the gauge is 5st=1″. Do I need to get a lighter wt. denim? Since I haven’t bought this cotton yarn in ages, i wasn’t sure if it comes in the thinner gauge. I can always check!

    thanks so much. loved your blog.

  5. I just joined and I can’t wait to try the purse. I’m a grandma and I’m making it for my teenage granddaughter. It looks like something she would love. I might make one for me too.

  6. I love this pattern. I’ve never made anything with a pattern so can’t wait to try it. I think I’m going to make it with worsted weight cotton so it’s a bit larger…..now to hunt up the colors.
