I started to design this bag as the sun was rising on the Summer solstice. It struck me how the funky red, yellow, and orange wool that I chose looked just like the colors in the sunrise. This is a quick and easy bag to knit with standard stitches, increases, and decreases. You can choose to do several variations for finishing such as a felted I-cord strap, purchased strap, lining or no lining, eyelets with a drawstring closure, magnetic clasp closure, etc. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should already know how to knit and purl as well as be comfortable with increases and decreases. GAUGE Gauge is not critical for this project. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Purse measures approximately 9" long by 5" deep after felting

Recommended with this pattern

  • 325 yards (150 grams) worsted weight wool or other yarn that will felt (not super-wash wool)
  • Size 8 (5.0 mm) needles, purchased purse strap, button of your choice to fit loop closure, large plastic sewing needle

My mom taught me to crochet and sew when I was a child. I learned to knit a few years ago. I have always enjoyed fiber arts as a hobby. Now I have started a new venture. I have an online store called World Village Fibers. My goal is to eventually open a shop in my hometown. Update: I'm very fortunate to have found a nice space for a small fiber arts shop/studio and plan to open in 2012!
