Comments: Nothing here made me want to reach for my needles but that's more a reflection on me than the actual patterns. There's a good variety of handbags in this, particularly the hand-held variety with a few shoulder bags as well. A good place to start for some interesting bags and possibly to get inspiration, some of them could be adapted with some changes and different stitch patterns used.

Buy/Borrow: I'd borrow this one to see if it's to your taste, if you're a bag knitter this one isn't a bad example of that genre.

Where found: Meath County Libraries have a copy I borrowed through the Borrowbooks (borrowbooks.ie) scheme
