Houndstooth Boulevard Bag
This stylish bag showcases a classic houndstooth check with a pop of color and features an oversized decorative button. While red is a traditional accent, think about using lime green or bright acid yellow for a new twist.
Notes This pattern is worked by knitting a rectangle for the bottom of the bag, picking up stitches around the other 3 sides of the piece, and joining to work in the round. Handles are knitted as continuous extensions then grafted together in the middle.
