Felted tote using one skein of Malabrigo Worsted wool. This tote uses cables to add detailing to the flap and sides, and has decreases at the bottom to give depth. The strap is adjustable; mods suggested by testers exist (see projects). A joy to knit - both because of the yarn and the pattern - and looks great either felted or unfelted and with a lining.

Skills needed: Cabling, cable cast-on, knitting in the round, three-needle bindoff, I-cord, felting.
