Bobbles and twisted stitches form a floral pattern on this chic handbag. Helen Ardley’s design is fully lined with fabric and has faux leather handles. It also features press fasteners at the sides of the top band, so that the size of the opening can be adjusted. Rowan’s Handknit Cotton yarn gives a soft yet sturdy fabric, with excellent stitch
definition; it is also machine-washable.
