This pattern will accommodate any yarn! Two sizes are included in the pattern - a tiny bag and a larger bag. However, you can use ANY yarn you want, and make ANY size bag you'd like with this pattern (and a little math). The piece is worked from the bottom up, felted, then a purchased handle is sewn on. You can make this bag in any size you wish, using any yarn you want, but you will have to do some simple math to determine the size your mitered diamonds in relation to the bottom of the bag. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY picking up stitches GAUGE Gauge will vary drastically depending on yarn used and amount of felting. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The 25-stitch diamonds in the bag pictured measure approx 7"/18cm across x 5-1/2"/14 cm deep before felting, and 5"/13cm across x 4"/10 cm deep after felting.
