Designed as a practical gift for a festival-goer, this is perfect for carrying those essentials.
I wanted to design a bright, fun bag for my cousin who goes to Glastonbury every time. She loves the concerts but is always worried about keeping hold of her valuables. I wanted something eye catching that didn’t look clumsy, heavy or out of place in the festival atmosphere. The handle of the bag is designed to form a snug slipknot around your wrist, which means no need for fastenings and it’ll keep your phone, purse, keys or knitting projects safe. For wet weather, I lined this one with a zip lock bag.

Two contrasting balls of worsted weight, self striping yarn should make one bag with enough left over to make a second bag if you reverse the MC/CC.
