I love the Norwegian Fir lace stitch that I found in “The Knitter’s Bible.” I used it in one of my wine bottle gift bag patterns and thought it would also look pretty used for the flap on a holiday clutch bag. I had a lot of fun working it up and was fairly pleased with the way it turned out.
This bag is 5" x 7.5", knitted on No. 4 needles with Red Heart Super Saver medium worsted, Soft White, and lined with a black-and-white cotton paisley print. Lace holes serve as the buttonholes. I will probably add a knitted wrist strap to finish the bag.
