Designed to mimic the shaggy coat of a wild ram, Staffa is an attractive and useful hand bag/shoulder bag. The loopy stitch is easy to master after a little practice and the large needles mean that it knits up quickly. A great, lazy, afternoon project! Note: Directions for Loopy Stitch are written for English style knitting. If you knit Continental style, you will need to wrap the yarn around your right thumb instead of your left thumb.
