The KNIT SAFARI Herringbone Knit Clutch is a trendy knitted handbad, inspired by its crochet twin The Criss-Cross Crochet Clutch. Made from a dense pattern of zig zag stitches, and big enough to hold all your necessities, this knitted handbag with decorative lamé chain and functional chain strap will take you from day to night in a stitch!

The Herringbone Knit Clutch is a DIY knitting pattern for a handmade handbag, worked flat and seamed into shape. Instructions and a photo tutorial of the Herringbone Knit Stitch is included in the pattern.   

Please note: Due to the nature of jersey yarn, your yarn may be slightly thicker or thinner than the yarn I used. Don’t worry too much about this! You will just need to pay close attention to your swatch dimensions. Additionally, a lot of yarn is used up in the puff stitches. Make sure your puffs are all uniform in size and approximately the same height as your DC row, so that you don’t run out of yarn.

SIZES: One size only, 21cm wide, 16cm tall and 8cm deep with a 1m long strap.


The main body of the bag is crocheted using 1 cone of super-chunky Jersey Yarn, or an equivalent Jumbo yarn with 0-4 wpi. Here are some suggestions you might like to try:

  • Hooked Zpagetti Solids: 850g, 120m (131 yards)
  • Paintbox Yarns Recyled T-Shirt: 800g, 110m (120 yards)

The decorative chain is crocheted using a small amount of DK Lamé, or an equivalent DK yarn with 11 wpi. Here are some suggestions you might like to try:

  • Ricorumi DK Lamé: 10g, 50m (55 yards
  • Twilley of Stamford Goldfingering: 50g, 199m (218 yards)

Can't find this yarn near you, or not sure if the yarn in your stash will work? We always recommend that you knit a test swatch to check your gauge before starting out, and finding the right combination of needle size and type and yarn to match the gauge in the pattern.
