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 โ€œmosaic knittingโ€ 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.

Yarn requirement:
(A) beige color 23 4 skeins
(B) mustard color 35 3 skeins
(C) ivory color 08 1 skein
(D) petrol color 74 1 skein
