A stylish and appealing summer tote with an attractive finish that gives it a polished look. This bag stands out.
This colourful tote is knitted in a slip stitch pattern also referred to as “mosaic knitting” which uses only one color at a time while the other colors are stranded at the beginning of the row.
It is roomy and the overall textured-stitch patterns make it sturdy and durable. It is knitted flat then seamed. Lining is optional (no instructions given) though not required.
