The Sweetwater Hipster Bag in two sizes – a large bag for teens/adults and a sweet little smaller size for girls. Both are great basic felted bags that you can wear anytime. The large size knits up quickly using two strands of worsted weight yarn held together, the child’s size uses one strand. Both are knit in the round and there is no seaming! Well, maybe one seam of 6 stitches if you make the bag with felted handles. You can embellish this bag with needle felting, embroidery, a crocheted flower, or a special pin. It also looks great with no embelishment, just use an interesting button as a focal point for your bag. The Sweetwater Hipster is such a fun bag to make and wear and because it knits up quickly you can make one in all your favorite colors!!

Skill level: beginner
