What Goes Around Bag
From the pattern:
This felted bag is knit in one piece. You first knit the circle for the front, then do the side, then decrease to form the circle for the back. The strap is knitted, and can be attached directly to the body, or attached to two decorative bracelets. British-inspired model bag was knit and photographed by Christine Walker of elann.com. Bag also looks lovely knit in one solid color - the options are limited only by your imagination!
Approx. 12” in circumference before felting, and about 10” in circumference after felting.
