The deceivingly complex look of weaving is obtained through a handful of simple techniques. The main body is knit in garter-stitch strips. A provisional cast-on and 3-needle bind-off eliminate any need for seaming, excluding the tacking down of edges. Directions are given for two sizes: a small purse and a laptop bag.

As with all my patterns, you will receive a pdf document providing step-by-step instructions on how to make the laptop bag.
Once payment is complete, you will be able to download the pattern. All payments are processed by Paypal. If you don’t have a Paypal account, you may still pay with this method by using your credit card. No account set up is necessary. If you use a Paypal account that does not have any funds in it nor is associated with a credit card, Paypal will process your payment with an e-check. Typically, a delay of three days is noticed when using an e-check. Once the check clears, you may download the pattern. Please note that you can avoid the delay by using a credit card.
