Thanks to the nature of fairisle and criss-cross stitches, this bag is actually sturdy enough to hold your stuff. Surprisingly simple to knit, too. Knit on an Authentic Knitting Board, Long Loom, Kiss Loom or Noble Knitter with 27-43 needles on each side, depending on size and gauge selected. Two gauges are given. Worsted weight yarn that gets 3.5 stitches/4.5 rows in stockinette is knitted on the Authentic Knitting Board or Noble Knitter with rows of pegs spaced 1” apart. Bulky yarn that gets 3 stitches/3.3 rows per inch may be knitted on the Authentic Knitting Board or Noble Knitter with the rows of needles spaced 1.3” apart. Stitch definitions and instructions for twisted cord straps are included. A small amount of contrasting yarn is needed for the fairisle design.
