Felted Sweetwater Hipster Bags Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits

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.  Both are knit in the round so there is no seaming! Well, maybe one seam of 6 stitches if you make the bag with felted handles.  You can embellish this bag with needle felting, embroidery, a crocheted flower, or a special pin.  It also looks great with no embellishment, 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 bag shown with the leather strap has side tabs with snaps.  This allows you to remove the strap to wash the bag, and you only need to purchase one leather strap no matter how many bags you make! 

*****I now have leather straps to finish your bag!!  *****

You can find a selection of straps to suit your needs in my Etsy shop here:
