Sweetwater Felted Wool Bag Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits
This bag knits up quickly using two strands of worsted weight wool. The felted fabric is thick, soft and durable so you can use this bag everyday. There is very little seaming and you can finish this bag with leather handles or felted handles. You can also make this bag longer if you wish, instructions are included for adding length. Pattern is written so that a beginning knitter can easily make this bag. The hardest part is deciding what color to make!
