Knitting
Worsted / 10 ply (9 wpi) ?
12 stitches and 16 rows = 4 inches in The gauge above refers to pre-felted, using a double-strand of worsted weight yarn. The felted gauge (or for an unfelted bag) should be 16 stitches & 24 rounds in 4 inches.

1750 - 2665 yards (1600 - 2437 m)
Small and Large

These totes have nice wide bases so you can pack a lot into them. Fold in the corners for a decidedly vintage travel bag, or fill it to the top. A zipper closure keeps your things from spilling out all over the tarmac. This pattern also includes instructions for a coordinating Yoga Bag (which is listed on Ravelry as a separate entry). They all are designed for the intrepid beginner: They require knowledge of knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches, working in the round on circular needles, and some simple hand-sewing.

Unfelted Bags
To make unfelted bags, use a single strand of worsted weight yarn (or smaller-gauge yarn that when held double is equivalent to worsted weight) and a size 8 (5mm) 24” (60cm) circular needle (or size needed to achieve the “felted” gauge).

If using single strand of worsted weight yarn, use approximately 2/3 the yardage listed above; if using two strands of lighter-weight yarn, use the same yardage as listed above.
