Portland Plaid City Bag Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits
The Portland Plaid City Bag is a fun, updated take on a traditional plaid handbag with a modern shape. Random horizontal stripes and random vertical stripes create an unexpected plaid pattern. Use your own creativity to develop a unique plaid pattern or make the bag as pictured using the suggested pattern. If you like a more traditional plaid, make both the horizontal and vertical stripes in a uniform repeating pattern. You could also make it all one color, or with just horizontal stripes. There are unlimited possibilities for making this bag uniquely your own!
