Approximate Finished Dimensions
NOTE: All finished sizes are approximate. Finished sizes may vary with fiber choice, needle size, gauge, and, if felted, felting time.
Small Cornucopia Bag: 16”/40cm at widest point x 13” 33cm tall, 10” (25cm) opening
Medium Cornucopia Bag: 20” (51cm) at widest point x 17” (43cm) tall x 11 (28cm) opening
Large Cornucopia Bag: 22.5” (57cm) at widest point x 18” (45.75cm) tall x 12” (30.5cm) opening

Pre-felted Gauge
13 stitches and 16 rounds over 4” (10cm)

Felted/non-felted Gauge
16 stitches and 24 - 32 rounds = 4” (10cm). Please check your unfelted and felted gauges by swatching and felting an 8 x 8” (20 x 20cm) piece first. There will be variation in finished size if gauge differs due to different needle size, yarn type, or fiber content. Row/round gauge is of greater importance than stitch gauge during the felting process. Non-merino wools, for example, will not felt as short as 100% merino yarns. The approximate finished measurements are for a bag made using 100% merino yarn—see the information on Pictured Sample below.
