This pattern is great for gifts! Each small bag can be completed in an afternoon or weekend. I always carry one to work on when I need something simple to knit. Brown Sheep offers abundant colors, felts wonderfully and is cost effective for numerous gifts. Any felt-able wool will work.

By choosing different color patterns, techniques and/or slip stitch patterns, this bag can be classic or modern to fit the style of anyone. Use this pattern as a blank canvas to design your very own accessory bag! Great for travel and social knitting!

Modifications: This pattern can easily be modified to use any weight of yarn you prefer, just make sure you adjust your needle size accordingly.

Sport weight was chosen so that the pattern would be nice and clear and not too thick. Worsted weight would work as well.
