This project is RETIRED. For two other bottle carriers by ColorJoy, see:
ZigBagZ: Two Collections of Felted Bags, Mini & Maxi

This project includes more of a formula than a pattern, putting you in charge of final size. Included are guidelines to make one of two different types of bags (Water Bottle Holder, and Sunglasses/ Camera/ Wallet Holder).

Yarn: About 50gm-2oz Lamb’s Pride Worsted wool/mohair single-ply yarn or other heavy worsted-weight animal-fiber yarn such as Cascade Pastaza or Classic Elite Montera wool/llama. Or 2oz a self-striping yarn such as Noro Kureyon, K1C2 Paintbox or Southwest Trading Karaoke.

Optional: small amounts (appx. 12 yd each) of thinner yarns: ribbon, sockyarn, boucle, brushed mohair; anything that will knit comfortably as a second strand along with the main yarn, for a few purled rows.

Gauge: Appx 4st/in (16st/10cm)

Needles: Set of 4 or 5 Double Pointed Needles (DPNs), size 7US/4.5mm, or adjust to achieve gauge.

Size: Knit-to-fit instructions, samples included are for size 16-20oz/half-liter bottle, or circumference 5.5”/14cm for sunglasses, 7”/18cm for Camera/Palm Device. Flat pouch size 6”/15cm inches in total length, is easy to adjust to other sizes for your own needs.
