Pattern Details

The Sweetwater Hipster Bag in two sizes - a large bag for teens/adults and a sweet little smaller size for girls. Both are great basic felted bags that you can wear anytime. The large size knits up quickly using two strands of worsted weight yarn held together, the child's size uses one strand, and there is no seaming! Well, maybe one seam of 6 stitches if you make the bag with felted strap. You can embellish this bag with needle felting, embroidery, a crocheted flower, or a special pin. It also looks great with no embelishment, just use an interesting button as a focal point for your bag. The Sweetwater Hipster is such a fun bag to make and wear and because it knits up quickly you can make one in all your favorite colors!! The large size bag can be made with a felted strap (gray bag with flower in photo) or you can attach a leather strap to felted tabs using heavy duty snaps. That way you can make lots of bags and only need one strap! Pattern includes lots of pictures, complete instructions for felting your knitted bag in the washing machine, and a tutorial with instructions for making a fabric lining.
