Sweetwater Felted Wool Bag Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits


This bag knits up quickly using two strands of worsted weight wool.  The felted fabric is thick, soft and durable so you can use this bag everyday instead of just special occasions.  There is very little seaming and you can make this bag with leather handles or felted handles. You can also make this bag longer if you wish, instructions are included for adding length. Pattern is written so that a beginning knitter can easily make this bag.  The hardest part is deciding what color to make!

I have leather and vinyl straps (shown in photos) to go with this bag!! You can find them here on my website.
