Designed to accompany our Leather Handle Kit - Short, the Yeti Bag is both fun and fuzzy. Knit from the bottom up with a Provisional Cast-On, you can easily modify this bag to be as large or small as you’d like. With such a simple pattern, you can really adapt it to be anything you want - the possibilities are endless. Easily add and remove the handles for washing with their minimal no-sew design. Paired together, this bag and these handles are a woolly perfect match.
