"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"
"This is not a free pattern, so not sure why it is still featured on an "all free knitting" website."

It's amazing how expensive bags and purses can be considering their design is pretty simple overall. If you're like us and you hate shelling out tens to hundreds of dollars on something that's just built to look good and hold things, then you might be interested in knitting your own tote bag. It is easy to forget that your knitting skills can be put to work to create something practical, like a tote bag. Scarves, sweaters, hats, and mittens often get the lion's share of the knitting world's attention, but there is a lot to be said for the benefits of a tote you knit yourself. The difficulty levels range from beginner to advanced, and there are just so many styles to choose from.
We highly recommend these knitting ideas for tote bags for the summertime to carry with you to the beach or on vacation. You can stuff your sunblock, sari, sunglasses, and books inside and keep it with you by your towel. Our free purse patterns are better suited for everyday events, to carry with you either to a fancy event or just on a night out with the girls. Pick the tote or purse that suits your personality best, and then get to knitting!
