This pattern requires 5 skeins of yarn, 3 skeins in the main color (MC) and 2 skeins in the complementary color (CC).

Bag width: 18 inches/45.7 cm
Bag length: 14 inches/35.6 cm

The deceivingly complex look of weaving is obtained through a handful of simple techniques. The main body is knit in garter-stitch strips. A provisional cast-on and 3-needle bind-off eliminate any need for seaming, excluding the tacking down of edges.
