I'm a big fan of country chic, and this bag definitely fits into that category. The use of Icelandic wool ensures that this gorgeous bag is beautifully soft once felted which also makes it water resistant and durable. It's ideal for day to day shopping errands, picnics or trip to the beach. GAUGE 16 sts and 20 rows = 4" (10cm) in St st before felting. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The bag measures approximately 36" (92cm) around the rim and about 14" (35cm) in height, the base of the bag 12.5" (32cm) wide with a depth of 4" (10cm). The straps are 21" (55cm) making them the perfect length for a shoulder bag.
