Pattern Details

The Sweetwater Bag knits up quickly using two strands of worsted weight yarn held together. The felted fabric is thick, soft and sturdy so you can use your bag everyday not just on special occasions. The bag is knit in the round with very little seaming. Customize your bag with either felted handles or leather handles. You can also add metal snaps to make your leather straps removable so you can make the bag in several colors and only have to buy one pair of straps!! The snaps also make your bag washable since you can remove the straps. A tutorial with instructions for making a fabric lining for the bag is also included. Your pattern purchase also includes support, if you ever have a question about the pattern, felting or making the lining, just send me an email and I'll be happy to answer them!! I love to talk knitting :) Pattern includes permission to resell finished bags, please credit Lavender Hill Knits for the pattern design on any product tags or descriptions.
