This easy to wear design is suitable for knitters from advanced beginner upwards. Generously sized it’s knitted on straight needles the decoration is created by knitting with 3 colours of beads with shaping kept deliberately simple so that you can enjoy the beadwork. As the bag is knitted in Rowan Denim and takes into account the shrinkage of the yarn I would advise against using any other yarn for this design.

Finished bag is 34 cm wide x 32 cm long, length from centre of strap to bottom of bag is 79 cm

Also needed are:
783 x large blue beads
779 x large amber beads
534 x large pink beads

The pattern combines both written and charted instructions.
