Suitable for all knitters
You said you wanted a large bag? If so, this is the one for you. The kits contain 500g of British wool in either jet black or indigo. It can be worn over the shoulder, as a rucksack or across your back — just adjust the length of the I-cord drawstring and handle to suit your needs.
These kits come with a natural Kraft brown carrier illustrated by a large decorative Sheepfold label on the front and a photo label tied to the handle to show the finished bag — ideal as a gift either as a kit or as a completed item. Though we are sure you will start using it long before you hand it over!
To knit this wonderful bag you will need four 5.5 mm double pointed needles and a 5.5 mm circular needle, not to mention an enthusiasm for British wool! The I-cord handles are knitted with 4.5 mm double pointed needles. Stitch markers and stitch holders are useful too, as is a length of waste yarn. The ‘hard work’ of felting is easily done in your washing machine; such is the simplicity of knit-and-felt.
The finished size of this bag is approximately 30-32 cm x 48-50 cm (diameter x height) depending on how far you take the felting process. Wonderful to use as a large handbag, storage bag, knitting bag and more. Let us know how you use yours!
