Knitting the Honey Purse

A few months ago, I knitted the Honey purse by PetiteKnit with some leftover yarn. Here is what I think about it!

I always find it difficult to use leftover yarn because if you don’t have the same size of yarn and colours that go well together, you can’t do a big project. While I was looking for ideas, I found a few patterns from PetiteKnit. PetiteKnit has lots of pretty accessory patterns but the one I liked the most was the “Honey Purse”. I love this pattern so much because it has a really cool stitch: honeycomb brioche.

I immediately looked through my stash to see if I had a yarn that would work for this project and I found some leftovers from one of my first projects. I didn’t know how much I had exactly so I made the smaller version.

I’m going to be honest and let you know that this little purse has been frogged a few times. The stitch is really nice but a little tricky at first. I was soooo confused at first, because the pattern told me to knit in the round but still knit on the right and wrong side of the fabric. Anyway… it was a little weird, I tried several times but there was always a problem, so, I decided to watch a video and I figured it out. Basically, there are two ways of knitting honeycomb brioche and I was able to figure it out. Then I followed the rest of the pattern.

Here are the details:

I’m really happy with the final result, the yarn is perfect for this project, it gives a nice texture, and the zip is just beautiful! The pocket measures approximately 15cm by 10cm.
