Western Style Felted Bag

from Rsquartz
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Western Style Felted Bag
Western Style Felted Bag
Western Style Felted Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, Purl, SSK, I-Cord, Larks Head Knot

Pattern Description:

I love felted bags and wanted to make a bag with a wider strap. Then I saw the suede type yarn and decided that it would be just perfect for some western style decoration on a bag I was designing. It is just the right size...not too big, not too small. And the pocket is perfect for those little notes we all seem to carry around...or your cell phone.


Gauge is not really important as the bag will be felted and shrunk. All your little errors and connections will just disappear in the felting process.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Bag measures 8 x 9 x 2 1/2 inches. Strap is 31 inches from side to side. These measurements are after felting.


  • Worsted weight wool yarn or other worsted weight yarn that will felt

You Will Also Need:

  • Size 15 24" circular knitting needle, size 15 double pointed needles, tapestry needle, stitch markers, stitch holder, 1" button
