Yarn note: Pattern calls for 6 hanks (3 each of dark spruce heather and country green) for the body of the bag, and one hank (tangerine heather) for the contrasting “sea anemone” decoration.

Gauge is measured on larger needles.

Size is measured after felting.

From the book: “I love to carry a messenger bag because I can sling it across my body and not worry about the strap falling off my shoulder. This one is knitted in one piece from the base up; bright tentacles are knitted onto the flap; then the whole thing is felted.”
