(6) Name: 'Knitting : Fulfillment

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Stranded colourwork (flat)
  • knit
  • purl
  • basic machine sewing
  • installing a zipper
  • basic hand sewing (for embellishments)

Pattern Description:

The colourwork patterns on this bag were inspired by the Art Nouveau movement. It is big enough to carry a large project in progress, and/or your overnight stuff. Embellishments are sewn on after the bag is assembled, which means that you can continue to embellish for as long as you like. Use a fun print fabric to line it, and a good sturdy yarn to knit it. Instructions are included for how to make your own pattern pieces from the finished knitting in order to ensure that the lining fits just right.

This pattern is on sale for a short time for 30% off! (Regular price is $6.00, I have changed it to $4.20 for the duration of the sale.) Read my blog post about it to learn more!
