Simple Knit Tote

A hand-knit handbag, made with love not logos, can really carry the day, and Purl Soho's beautifully shaped, minimally wrought Simple Knit Tote does just that!  Construction is in keeping with the easy aesthetic: You knit the bottom flat, pick up around the edges and knit the body of the bag in the round, then knit each side of the strap and join in the middle with a 3-needle bind off.  Knit it for you or your favorite bag-user… This Simple Knit Tote, with its perfect form, detail without fuss, and slouchy-cool structure, is our kind of everyday hero!
