A beautiful, stylish shoulder bag. This curvy shoulder bag is deceptively large, and will easily carry all your essentials in an elegant way.

2 pattern versions are supplied for you to choose either circular or flat knitting, both with 2 strap length options.

This bag is knitted first in pure wool and then felted in an ordinary washing machine.

Any felting yarns will work well for this pattern-Look to see if the yarn is called a felting/ filz wool. Most suppliers will say if it is good for felting but always check for hand-wash only!!

My clear and detailed 8 page pattern contains clear instructions for-
Knitting the bag in both circular or flat ( stocking stitch) versions.
