Another great use of fur yarn, besides knitting tons of scarves! We used a variegated furry yarn ( Lion Brand Fun Fur), then completed top of purse with worsted weight yarns, in an easy row color graph pattern. It looks stunning in person! We had requests from teens for this purse! We used a 24 inch circular needle , US size 10. And the handle is knit, but you could use a thick length of ribbon for the handle , if desired. This one is fun to knit!
