Nashville Bag Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits


The Nashville Bag is the perfect little bag to go with your little black dress, sundress, or even a pair of jeans.  It is the perfect size to hold essentials: lipstick, cell phone, iPod, wallet, make-up and more. You can tuck it into a larger tote when you go to work, take it out when you are ready to go to lunch or out after work and not have to bring your huge tote.  The Nashville Bag is fun to knit and it is amazing to see it transform from an oddly shaped piece of knitting into a beautiful ruffled purse after a few minutes in the washing machine! This purse is great in a basic go-to color like charcoal gray or make one in a fun bright color to go with a special outfit. I hope you enjoy creating yours.
