this purse is knit on size US 15 circular needles (16 inches). the original pattern has knit handles as well, but i used plastic ones. the yarn used was galway chunky pink wool and patons worsted weight brown wool. the pattern calls for beads to be knit in as the purse is made. however, after felting, i sewed beads around the top instead of knitting them in.
