The Desert Diamond Hipster is a versatile sized bag that can be finished as a hipster bag with long strap, tote bag with two straps, or short shoulder bag with one short strap.  Different yarns produce different textures of the slip stitch patterns.  Berroco “Suede” yarn (tan bag in photos) gives a subtle texture, worsted weight cotton (green bag in photos) gives a more prominent texture. Bag is knit in the round with one seam.  The knitted strap is worked in the same stitch pattern that is used for the bottom of the bag, or you can use a leather or vinyl strap or straps.  


Pattern directions include color pictures, very detailed knitting instructions, definitions of stitches used and complete instructions for making a fabric strap(s) and lining the bag.  Instructions are written for the bottom of the bag and the strap, the body of the bag uses charted instructions.


Skill level: intermediate, plus some sewing skills (if you are making a fabric lining)
