Cora’s Felted Tote Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round, knit, purl, Single Crcohet (optiona)

Pattern Description:

I just love to try new ideas and techniques...Inspired by Ari's Felted Tote Bag (http://sasw.blogspot.com/2006/03/felted-tote-bag.html) and the Little Partition Bag (http://www.keyboardbiologist.net/Patterns/LittlePartitionedBag.html). I loved both of these patterns. However the partitioned bag was to small for my needs and I really like to be able to organize my knitting bag as I often use it as a purse. So I used the best of both bags to make my bag. I also will be adding some pockets for my cell phone and for my wallet and other little day-to-day necessities.

I have permission from both designers to post the pattern.

About the designer

I love to knit, crochet and cross stitch. I first learned to knit when I was 22 and pregnant with my daughter, then it was onto plastic canvas and cross stitch than I learned to crochet at 27
