Tiny knit handbag

What got into me?! I finished all the body parts of the cocoa buddy, and was thinking how much I dreaded sewing it together. So make a tiny handbag. It may end up on the Christmas tree of tiny knits. If you want to make one, here's how:



On 2 dpn's, cast on 20.

(K1, slip 1 purlwise) across row, turn.

Repeat row 10 times.

Carefully remove needle, and gently open tube.

Place live stitches on 2 dpn's.

Turn tube inside out so that knit stitches show.

Bind off.

Knit 4 stitch I-cord about 24 stitches long.

Stitch inside purse edge.


I'm sure it could be made more easily another way, but opening the tube feels like magic.
