Here is my Summer Party Bag in Flora and Garden 3. Layers and layers of ribbon cover a cotton purse knit in Twice Knit stitch. The little flowers are knit in Flora as well and help separate the drawstring loops.
Twice Knit is a variation on the knit two together decrease without the decrease part. To work it, knit two stitches together but only slide one of them off the needle. It takes a little longer for me to work, but for some knitters it is just as fast as plain knitting and it makes an incredibly sturdy base for this cute bag.
You can see the front of the Summer Party Shrug in this photo. I love how the frill edging looks like rosettes, and how it drapes over her elbows.
