Designer, Nora J. Bellows: "The Lenten Roses Beaded Evening bag looks elegant with or without the flower embellishment included in the pattern. The beaded yarn held together with unbeaded yarn gives this bag its characteristic understated, sparkly elegance.
Wheather with knitted, beaded, or silk handles, this bag adds an air of sophistication to any outfit and any occasion. It is simple to make and block and relatively simple to finish."
Size: 14 to 16" base x 4.5" deep x 5.5" high
All Noni patterns call for Cascade 220, a skein of 100% wool, 220 yards. We like Galway (210 yards each) for these projects, especially because they are center-pull balls! Your stitches will disappear beautifully once felted.
You will need:
2 skeins Cascade 220 (or 3 balls Galway)
and 3 skeins Tilli Tomas Flurries in similar color
needles: US 11 circular 24" long
US 11 double pointed
-one 13" to 20" large-toothed zipper
-six 25mm bag feet
For a knitted handle in the beaded yarn, you will need
one more skein of Flurries and US 5 double pointed needles.
For the flowers, you will need Flurries or worsted wool
and US 7 double pointed needles. Flower pattern included!
