This bag is so much fun, with so much color! Knit with only three balls of Noro Kureyon or other slowly-self-striping yarn. Sample bags each use three different colorways in one purse, with a few uniting colors in all balls. Solid-colored features (bottom of bag and I-cord handles) are knit of a coordinating solid feltable yarn.

The bag is knit with just one strand of yarn, so it has a nice, soft (and lightweight) feel compared to other similar felted bags. It also means the project will not cost an arm and a leg at the yarn shop. Finished bag is approximately 7 inches x 11 inches at the base and 12 inches tall.

Yarn: Noro Kureyon (worsted weight, single-ply feltable multicolored wool): Three (3) 50gm balls in related but different colorways. Alternately, use all one colorway in Kureyon; or two skeins of one colorway and one of another. Also, 220yd of worsted-weight feltable solid yarn in related colorway.

Needle: Size 10.5 US/6.5 mm, 24-inch circular, or whatever size allows you to reach gauge above. Also, 2 Double-Pointed Needles (DPNs) in size 10 or 10.5 (shorter DPN’s are preferred).
