This felted bag with fun wave pattern and ruffly trim is offered in two sizes, a small purse for an afternoon about town and a large tote that will hold everything but the kitchen sink. A whimsical felted flower adorns the body of the bag. This design is knitted from the bottom up in the round with the yarn held double throughout. The flower is worked separately, and is sewn on after it and the bag have been felted. Yarn requirements are as follows: Cascade 220—2 (5) skeins color #9438, 2 (5) skeins color #7802, 1 skein of color #9461 and 1 (3) skeins of color #7919.
