Spring Bag

I made the "Spring Green Bag" from issue 8 for my sister for Christmas.

Spring Bag Pre Felting

Spring Bag

Mods: left out top stripe at her request, skipped the applied icord around top and instead picked up stitches around side and knit a couple of rows to match top of bag.
Yarn: Spotlight Harvest Pure Wool (5 skeins total)

I would definitely make this again, I want to do it for myself in the bright colours shown on Yarn's cover.

Katherine, it's lovely - if only mine turns out so well.

Katherine said...

I look forward to seeing yours, I want to make another (or two).

It looks great - I am yet to felt (mainly because I dont have a top load washing machine and dont feel like hand felting (LOL)

Katherine said...

Thanks. I felted mine in a front loader, I just let it go on a 60 degree wash for about 8-10 minutes and then drained the water.

Very nice!

I saw this momentarily while on hollies and was cursing that I couldn't comment immediately. This looks GORGEOUS and I have resolved to knit one almost immediately!

Thank you :) I would love to see yours when it's done. It's such a great pattern, you can almost do it with your eyes closed for the most part, but you wouldn't know it from the finished product.
