Both bag styles have mitered garter stitch bottom, knit-in vertical "edges", no seaming, and optional needle felting embellishment. Bag with purchased handles is 11.5 inches wide by 13.5 inches tall (not including handles) by 3.5 inches from front to back. Bag with shoulder strap is 11.5 inches wide by 11.5 inches tall (not including strap or gussets) by 4 inches from front to back. (Bag will seem "bigger", however, because of the strap gussets.) Both bags would work well to carry knitting projects.
This pattern is printed on card stock (11x17 inches folded in half) and may be purchased at One Planet Yarn and Fiber by clicking here.
It is also available at One Planet Yarn and Fiber in a kit with needle-felting supplies by clicking on "Needle Felting Kits" in the sidebar of that store, or by clicking here. The kit includes assorted bits of colored fiber, three felting needles, foam pad, and pattern.
Bag with purchased handles also requires:
- 810 yards of worsted weight feltable yarn, such as Cascade 220 or Plymouth Galway
- Purchased handles having 4.5-5.0" straight part for attaching to bag
- 1050 yards of worsted weight feltable yarn, such as Cascade 220 or Plymouth Galway
This is a great project to create a single color felted bag to embellish with needle felting, or use various feltable stash yarns for a unique bag without embellishment.
