PATTERN DETAILS

Color meets texture in this bag. The combination of wool and cotton done in seed stitch is eye-catching.The model bag is done in neutrals, but different colors would change the look entirely. Choose your favorite color combination. The bag is felted, but it will not shrink as much as an all wool bag would in the felting process. The resulting fabric is extremely sturdy and suitable for a bag. NOTE: Do not use super wash wool for felting. It is big enough to hold a knitting project as well as to be used as a purse - therefore it's great to take along and be organized. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit and purl, knit in the round, make increases. GAUGE 12 stitches/4 inches, and 20 rows/4 inches in stockinette stitch, with both yarns held together. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 32 inches around and 11 inches high
