This pattern gives you full instructions on how to knit, and felt, this gorgeous bag. (the lovely knitted daisy is available as a separate knitting pattern)

The finished bag measurements, when felted, are approximately 35 x 30 cm. but please bear in mind that felting is not an exact science and finished measurements may vary.

Worked in the round on a 9mm circular needle, using The Mercerie’s aran weight yarn it will have a pre-felted tension of 12st x 18rws and a finished felted tension of around 18sts x 27rws. It is felted in the washing machine - and it’s very easy to do!

The knitted stitches will no longer be visible when the bag is fully felted making an extremely strong and functional bag.

You will need 3 balls of Cinnamon (orange) two balls of Candy (pink) and one ball of Berry (red).

The pattern for the lovely knitted daisy corsage is also available online.
