Simple-but-Cute Book Purse Knitting Pattern



Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart Ltd. Super Saver Multis-I think it has like 244 yards, but this didn’t use up the whole thing)

  • Size 8 needles
  • Size 9 needles
  • Tapestry Needle


  • 2 inches = 7 st x 13 R using size 9 needles in garter stitch



Using size 9 needles, cast on 28 stitches.

Work in garter stitch until piece measures about 16 inches long. (About 102 rows)

Bind off all stitches.

Front Pocket:

Using Size 9 needles, cast on 15 stitches.

Row 1: Knit 5, Purl 5, Knit 5

Knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches for the next 6 rows. (7 rows total.)

Repeat these 7 rows 2 more times. (pocket will be 3 “blocks” high)

Row 22: *K1, P1* to end

Row 23: *P1, K1* to end

Bind off all stitches in rib.



Using size 8 needles, cast on 4 stitches and work in stockinette stitch for 30 inches, or length suitable (I made this for my 12 year old cousin, so it’s “short person” length :P).

Bind off all stitches.



Using a tapestry needle, seam up both sides of the bag.

Seam strap onto sides of bag.


Seam pocket onto front.

Weave in all ends.

You’re done!


If you make the bag, I’d love to see pics!!

*If there’s something unclear in my pattern, feel free to ask, and if you know how something could be worded better, don’t hesitate to comment! This and my camera cozy are my first patterns I’ve ever written down and published, so I’m not very good at it yet! 🙂

Free Pattern!!–Camera Cozy

Here’s my first “published” free pattern! Whoo hoo! It’s a simple one, but everyone’s got to start somewhere, right?

Camera Cozy Knitting Pattern



  • size 10 knitting needles
  • Yarn: Yarn Bee: Icelandic Jewels in color Rose Quartz (or other bulky weight yarn)

Gauge: 2 in. = 6 st x 10 R

Finished Measurements: 3 1/2 inches wide x 5 1/2 inches long (thought it is quite stretchy)


Cast on 11 stitches leaving a 6 1/2 inch tail.

Work in stockinette stitch until piece measures 10 1/2 inches, or desired length.

Bind off all stitches leaving a 6 1/2 inch tail.

Seam up sides (not using cast on/cast off tails).

Trim tails to exactly 6 1/2 inches if necessary.

Tie ends of cast on and cast off tails together for a cute little handle.


[You could also try an icord handle(cast on 3 stitches and work in icord until desired length, bind off and seam onto bag.) for a thicker handle, or you could also knit up a handle (cast on 2 or 3 stitches and work in garter or stockinette stitch until desired length. Bind off and seam to bag). Be creative!]

Embellish with buttons or other fun things! (I used a scrapbooking brad). Again, be creative!!


~coming soon, another free pattern for a cute “book purse”!!
