Basic Felted Shoulder Bag with Strap(s)
This bag pattern is a great way to use up leftover yarns (as long as they are wool), to experiment with felting, to learn how to work Fair Isle patterns, to work with printed charts, and to practice knitting in the round.
It is felted, so it does not need to be lined. I have included several ways to make strap(s), to close the bag, and to add pockets. Also included is the chart for the Fair Isle design on the Red Sampler Bag.
You can make it slightly smaller or larger by changing the size of the bottom and adjusting the rounds up accordingly.
This pattern is meant to be enjoyed, not sweated out!!!
