Pattern For Felted Bags

Posted on
I have made a number of felted bags and i make 2 sides of a very simple rectangle in Dble Jacquard [for thickness] I start at the top with a Dbl Bed hem knit the length and take off on waste.Knit the 2nd side and cast off together Add a small rectangle for a pocket. sew halfway up the sides. Make 2 long tubes for handles and then put in WM on wool wash cycle. You just have to make sure to put something in the bag and handles so they do not felt together. You may have to repeat the wash or put in dryer to felt sufficiently. Look in handknitting or felting mags for inspiration Nancy
