#846 Opera Bag

"A small purse created from a string of connected equilateral triangles, with an I-cord trim, handle and button-loop," says Neatby. "Mate plane geometry with subtle elegance, and the result is this lovely gift-sized project, ideal for knitters on the go. This bag provides a perfect use for rare skeins of exotic yarn or a perfect frame to highlight one fabulous button. The bag is knit as a continuous strip of equilateral triangles, trimmed with an I-cord strap and button loop." Here Neatby the teacher is in full flower. This bag can be worked to nearly any gauge (those given below are only suggestions), and there are gorgeous diagrams and illustrations to make this fascinating piece.
