#144 Yoga Bag

August 2010
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.
US 11 - 8.0 mm
875 - 925 yards (800 - 846 m)

Yoga practitioners will love the simplicity and functionality of this felted Yoga Mat Tote. A simple tie closure keeps it shut and the beautiful JUL rolled leather handle (make an I-cord handle if you like) makes it comfortable on the shoulder. For those archers among us, it was pointed out to me that this might also make a great quiver! It’s designed for the intrepid beginner; it requires knowledge of knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches, working in the round on circular needles, and some simple hand-sewing.

The #144 pattern also includes instructions for two sizes of the Everything tote, which has its own Ravelry entry.
