from jbw: “Measurements

Post-felting: 8” x 11”

Materials

3 skeins Malabrigo Worsted - Color 16 Glazed Carrot

1 pair US 9 straight or circular needles

1 US 9 / I crochet hook

Tapestry Needle for sewing in ends

Optional:

1 yard medium weight fabric for lining

Zipper - wait until finished to choose length

Gauge

Approx 4 sts. = 1 inch

”Note: the bag is intended to be felted, so gauge is not crucial, unless you prefer to line the bag and use it un-felted.

“Second Note: While the body of the bag is knit from top to bottom and then back up to top, the slanted front pockets are knit from left to right then back to left, with a nifty turning ridge so that both pockets have right side facing.”
