The East Meets West Satchel is not just a bag, but a functional work of art that will be envied by all! The rich Russian and Chinese florals come to life when set against the bright and vibrant colors. Interesting techniques such as stranded knitting, short rows, intarsia, and duplicate stitch will keep knitters on their toes while attention to small details adds the finishing touch. Knit in three pieces and sewn together, the strap continues around the satchel to form the base while the flap is knitted on last and includes an I-cord border for a neat, finished look. The pattern also gives the option to reinforce and line the East Meets West satchel for added stability. Finished Size: 16in wide, 25in strap

I would rate myself as a intermediate knitter, but this is the first time I've done stranded colorwork. I loved doing the pattern, spent way too many hours at a time working on it, it was so addictive. I found the instructions to be difficult initially, but once understood they are clear. Be sure to follow the blocking instructions, I had some difficulty and did not do it well. Not sure how well it will hold up as a purse but an incredibly fun project!
