TO MAKE: Retro 1970s RARE and HARD TO FIND 1970s Boho Purse! ---> digitally restored/enhanced is now in EASY TO READ LARGE PRINT.

❤️ Worked starting in the middle then going round and round, with sc and dc then adding popcorn and spiral stitches here and there...also has a flap.

This bag is NOT boho light or boho-similar because THIS IS BOHO! In its PUREST FORM...this is an ORIGINAL BOHO BAG PATTERN!!!!

*Zipper for opening may be added if you wish

Wonderful customer and Fiber Artist CATHY has generously shared her creation from this 1970s Vintage Pattern with us. As you know with these vintage patterns, the vintage yarns no longer exist - so Cathy and her mom's research began. They wanted to use similar colors. What to do? The actually called Lion Brand. Final recommendation: use number 5 bulky which has tons of colors. Off to Michaels Craft store they went and stumbled upon a yarn sale - awh, a good day for any crocheter! They decided upon 6 colors in Loops and Threads in #5 and 3 colors in Bernat in #6. As Cathy said, both are bulky and they seemed to be really super close to each other. THANK YOU CATHY for so generously sharing all this info that will come in very handy for a fellow fiber artist who wants to make this Boho Bag - which Cathy says "is totally me!" :)

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund for my PDF Pattern?

No, due to the nature of digital files, there are NO returns, exchanges, or cancellations. All sales are final.

What YARN do I use?

Vintage Beso specializes in Vintage Patterns; therefore, vintage yarn does not usually exist anymore. I do not give yarn recommendations to this crucial decision.

Once you purchase the pattern, you can research that based on the information provided in the pattern. Some clues to look for are the descriptive words and ply, for example, 2-ply or 4-ply.

Now, all that being said - I do give an Exclusive Supplemental Gift with tons of info but that does not mean that it has the specific info you are looking for.

*Modern equivalent yarns need to be researched as most vintage yarns were manufactured by the companies who created the patterns and no longer exist.*
