There are two versions; one has knitted cord handles, the other has an extra square on the front and back which wraps over a ready-made handle.
The bag can be worked in any DK-weight (US: lightweight)yarn. It can be worked in regular two colour stripes or in random stripes using a multi-coloured yarn.
I worked the regular striped grey bag in two shades of grey DK tweed wool. It has knitted cord handles.
I worked the random striped brown bag in a magic ball yarn made up of DK-weight cottons and wools in natural, stone and wood shades. There are instructions on how to knit a cover for the handles (optional).
