Here is a unique and exciting selection of contemporary hand-knitted bags, specially created by knitwear designer Emma King. They range from big stripey hand-held bags, to small clutch bags, to super-functional baby bags, to chic evening purses. The designs use a wide range of techniques, including intarsia, embroidery, crochet, Fair Isle and entrelac.


Each bag is illustrated with a stunning full-colour photograph, plus a close-up detail of the pattern, and comes with full knitting instructions and accurate charts. There are details of alternative colourways and added embellishment options. A workshop section focuses on the best yarns to use, how to add linings and inspirational ideas for eye-catching handles and fasteners to add those all important finishing touches to your work.
