Make this beautiful bag for someone special or for yourself....

The Sweetwater 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 instead of just special occasions. There is very little seaming and you can make 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!

Skill level: beginner

Pattern directions include lots of color pictures, very detailed knitting instructions, definitions of stitches used and complete instructions for turning your knitted bag into a beautiful felted bag using your washing machine. You will also receive my tutorial "Simple Linings for Knitted and Crocheted Bags" for lining the bag with fabric.
