This listing is for the materials AND a copy of the Interweave Knits Fall 08' issue which has the pattern to create the regular wristlet sized Dumpling Bag by Sharon Dreifuss (me). The pattern modifications to create a DOUBLE Dumpling bag are listed below in **PATTERN MODIFICATIONS, please take note of these modifications to properly size your DOUBLE Dumpling!

This DOUBLE Dumpling Kit includes:
▪ All yarns needed* to create a heathered Oatmeal DOUBLE Dumpling with medium brown vine and Autumn Orange berries as pictured (see below for option to order in different colors).
▪ Two brown ring closures as pictured (see information about choosing different rings)
▪ Magnetic snap with 2 pieces of grosgrain ribbon for mounting

The PATTERN for the Dumpling Bag is currently published (and only currently available) in Interweave Knits Fall '08. If you would like to purchase The Complete Dumpling Bag Kit or a DOUBLE Dumpling Bag Kit and you already have a copy of the magazine please see the SEPARATE LISTING for these Dumpling Kits (without pattern) in this shop.

knit until 8.0" (regular Dumpling calls for 6.0) and strap length is knit until 40" -44" (depending on your desired length) so you can wear the DOUBLE Dumpling on your shoulder. The DOUBLE Dumpling is worked holding two strands of the yarn included in the kit. The pictured Dumpling's on the right had their embroidery done after bag was felted for a more textured look. Pattern directions call for embroidering before felting for a more subtle look.
