Note about the yardage: The yardage listed in the pattern (1600+ yards), reflects four strands of fingering yarn held together and is equivalent to about 400 yards of bulky weight yarn.
Tote, messenger, satchel, clutch, handbag, backpack, hobo, bag, wallet, purse, pocketbook… I love them all. In general, these are practical accessories that hold your stuff. They can be small or large, simple or elaborate. You can never have too many bags if, like me, you are ever so slightly obsessed with knitting. I know you want to carry lots of yarny goodness with you wherever you go and to be able to have a specific bag for each work in progress.
This bag is not only roomy enough for all your everyday necessities, but it will hold a large project as well. It can be carried in hand like a tote or over the shoulder like a satchel or a hobo, and, with a longer handle, it could be even slung across the chest as a messenger bag. The unique cable placement provides all the shaping and the bulky yarn results in sturdy fabric. The creative blending of four colors of Palette yarn results in a beautifully rich fabric. Choose your size, choose your handle, customize it and make it your own. Either way you will have a great knitted bag for all your knitting.
