The Honey Clutch is worked in one piece from the bottom up. First the bottom is worked in double knitting. Then stitches are picked up and knitted around the sides of the bottom and the sides of the clutch are worked in the round in honeycomb brioche stitch. For the top of the clutch the two tabs at the ends are worked first in double knitting, then the two plackets for the two sides of the zipper are worked. Finally, the zipper is sewn in with needle and thread and the lining for the clutch is sewn (either on a sewing machine or by hand) and installed. The pattern contains the sewing instructions for the lining.
