Designed as a practical gift for a festival-goer, this is perfect for carrying those essentials.
I wanted to design a bright, fun bag for my cousin who goes to the Glastonbury Music festival every chance she has. She loves the concerts but is always worried about keeping hold of her valuables. I wanted something eye catching that didn't look clumsy, heavy or out of place in the festival atmosphere. The handle of the bag is designed to form a snug slipknot around your wrist, which means no need for fastenings and it'll keep your phone, purse, keys or knitting projects safe. For wet weather, I lined this one with a zip lock bag to keep electronics safe and dry.
Two contrasting balls of worsted or aran weight, self striping yarn should make one bag with enough left over to make a second bag if you reverse the MC/CC.
16 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stocking stitch on larger needles
120 yards of Worsted weight

DH and DS are a constant source of amusement and encouragement although I'm sure they think I'm mad when I insist on taking my knitting on holiday. I love to knit lace, cables for the challenge and interest and I'm also teaching myself to use my various knitting machines. All good fun.
I have three Labradors, one black, two chocolate. All girls and all as mad as hatters.
