Spring in Bloom Reticule
Spring in Bloom Reticule by Jessica Anderson, from Knitting Traditions Spring 2016
Embroidery has taken off in the knitting community over the past few years, and this little bag is the perfect chance to bring both crafts together. Inspired by color and simple flower motifs, this piece knits up quickly in the round using basic knitting techniques familiar even to a beginner. An I-cord handle and decorative tassel finish the bag.
