All you need for a handbag project;

knitting wool, crochet hook, small pair of scissors and a small bag or purse to keep your project in. A copy of the pattern until you can do it automatically is also a good idea.

This is a large throw. It has 64 squares. The squares have more rows than the instructions in the pattern. I was lucky to have been given a very large cone of wool which I wound into smaller balls for my handbag.

Detail of a section of the above throw.

This is a small coverlet for a pram. It has 16 squares sewn together. The squares are smaller than the ones in the throw above and are made with eight rows as given in the pattern. It was made to use up the last of the wool.

My current handbag project, unblocked and not pressed. It is made with a fine rust linen thread and will be a very lightweight summer throw. I have finished 24 of the 36 squares needed. Once it is complete I may decide to make more squares and make it a larger. I have plenty of the linen thread so will not have to worry about running out.
