Bridie Reliquary Bag
Conceived out of a love of hand spinning this pattern is simple yet lovely. A place to put all things important to you.
This pattern requires handspun yarn or commerical yarn.
Fiber: Mountain View Weavery fiber content; Merino; color: natural; 2 ounces
Bridie’s Hair fiber content; Chow/Golden Retriever undercoat; color: Bridie Red; 1 ounces ( I would like to suggest Angora, Yak, or Quivet as comparable substitutes for this fiber)
This should produce approximately 40 yards of yarn with a thick/thin quality to it. Both fibers started out as Fleece and were blended with a 72 point Ashford set of carders.
Commercial alternative: MC Plymouth, Encore Chunky 75% Acrylic, 25% Wool; 143yd/131m per 100g/3.53 oz skein; color: 1201; 1 ball
5 US #7/4.5mm double-point needles
Semi-circular, top-whorl, 2.75 ounce drop spindle
WRAPS PER INCH
6 (1-4 twists per inch)
A combination of Worsted and Inch worm
