From the pattern:

This bag is a great stash-buster. The slipstitch rib pattern gives a firm body to the bag softened by the seersucker stripes. It is simple to work on circular needles as you are only ever working with one colour on each round. You first knit the base of the bag, picking up stitches to form the body. You then knit a facing around the top to give strength and stability to the handles and the magnetic closures. This bag lends itself well to a variety of colourways and would also look great worked in two colours only.

Materials: 220 m (240 yds) of DK weight cotton yarn (21-23 sts to 10cm/4″) in main color (natural), plus 110 m (120 yds each of contrast colours A (coffee bean brown) and B (tapestry blue), plus 10-metre (11-yard) scraps of 13 other graduating colors of other cotton-based yarns. If you are using two colors only, you will need approximately 220 m (240 yds) each of main color and contrasting color.
