Here's my newest design --- the Lotus Blossom Bag. This is a joint project with my friend Jamie. She came up with some killer embellishments for this bag.
This felted bag features an unusual construction method. The body of the bag is knit sideways in garter stitch. Short rows add a flare to the bag. The bottom stitches are picked up along the lower edge and knit in the round. The pattern is written for a small (165 yards) and large bag (420 yards). It's knit in worsted weight felting wool yarn on size 10.5 (6.5 mm) needles. The purple and red bags were knit with Patons Classic Wool. The pink bag in Galway Paint.
Knit it plain or add flowers, buds, leaves, and vines. Scraps of several colors are needed for the embellishments. Directions are included to for the embellishments. (Psst...the flower pattern makes a cute coaster too!)
The small bag stands about 8" tall and is 20" around. The larger bag stands about 11" tall and is 31" around.
