Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Summer 2005: “Kristin Nicholas’s cheerful bag will come in handy for carrying knitting, books, or even a few groceries. Stitches are picked up around a garter-stitch base and worked in the round from the bottom up, then the bag is felted to the washer to form a thick, sturdy fabric. For a splash of playful color, Kristin has added a smattering of embroidered circles.”
