Use up bulky yarn, for a very cute purse! Teens and moms alike love this purse for so many reasons. It is so fast to knit, and the rose is quickly done too. Finished size is 10 inches high and 11 inches wide. This has been a favorite pattern for quick gifts! Knitting needles, US # 10.5. We used a very thick bulky yarn that knits up to gauge 3 stitches to 1 inch.
