Inspired by the colors and images of Mesa Verde National Park. Knitted in the round, the bag is finished with a Three Needle Bind-Off at the bottom, then I-Cord is attached along the side of the bag and continued on to create the strap. A second strap is knitted in a contrasting color and attached to the bag with buttons that features a petroglyph image. You can line the bag with woven fabric for extra stability.

The project is also available as a kit in the “Kits” section of the website (
