Felted Yoga Mat Bag
Pattern description from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: “I know a lot of people who practice yoga (and quite a few are knitters), and I’m sure many of them would choose this pretty, all-natural bag for carrying their yoga mat over the nylon kind sold at most sporting-goods stores. The wool yarn used in this project comes from a cooperative that supports over a thousand Uruguayans, mostly rural women.”
