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 2 balls of Denim (dark blue) two balls of Storm (grey) and two balls of Cloud (white)

The white wool will turn pale grey during the felting process!

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