Carry your necessities and more in this gorgeous, oversized knit bag! Featuring a slouchy design and wide straps, it’s both comfortable and practical. Playful tassels add fun and flair to your new fave knit tote.

This bag is made by first knitting a rectangular base. Next, you will pick up stitches around the base and proceed to knit in the round. Stitches are then split to work the shaping at the top and then again at the handles. The entire bag is knit while holding two strands of yarn together.
