"Felted Knitting PATTERN: Messenger - Satchel Tote"
This is an advanced beginner project.
Looks great with Noro Kureyon.
The pattern will provide instructions for the bags's basic shape. The photo used in this listing was done using all of my leftover wool yarn. Using the instructions provided, you will decide what color(s) you wish to use.
You will use strait size 10.5 needles and a single strand of worsted weight wool. You will knit 3 separate pieces with your strait needles and then sew them together before felting the bag. You will use the basic knit, purl , and knit 2 together (k2tog) stitches to create this bag.
This is a LARGE carry all like handbag. I am almost 5'9" and I can wear it across my torso or over one shoulder (see the pictures). Excellent for school, work and projects!
You can use a magnetic snap for the flap or a button for closure.
Use a leather belt as a strap alternative. I attached mine with 4 'dungaree'/blue jean snaps: SO SIMPLE and FAST! See Last picture. I also added a simple pocket to the outside of this one.
Forgo the flap closure and add a zipper!
After felting it measures about:
12"h x 11"w x 4"w
