PATTERN DETAILS

This bag is thus named because this self striping, chunky yarn reminds me of the colourful, hand woven baskets of Africa. The stipes naturally widen as you work the shoulder strap adding to the charm and uniqueness of the bag. You can take this functional, oversized shoulder bag with you to the market, the beach, or use it as your everyday bag. This easy pattern has lots of pictures and hints to help you to successfully complete your project. Lining instructions are not included with the pattern, but to keep the bag from stretching lining is recommended. The simple shaping of the bag and the funky colours should make lining this bag fun and easy.
