This bag is knitted mainly in the round on a circular needle using yarn doubled. The handles are in single yarn on dpns. The petals are crocheted.
I used 2 x 100g skeins of Cordovan Shade (brown) and 1 x 100 skein of shade Golden Rod (yellow). You can substitute other Worsted or Aran yarn but ensure it is not superwash or it won’t felt.
Bag and petals are felted separately to avoid fibre migration from one colour to another.
