Duffle-Upagus Bag to crochet

A friend's fabric duffle bag inspired me to create a felted version to crochet. This roomy bag is crocheted in the round from the bottom up without any seams. The top closes with a drawstring run through a row of eyelets near the top of the bag. A shoulder carrying strap is attached as you make the strap.

Create a unique felted bag with your worsted weight wool scraps or use one or more colors of your favorite felting wool. My sample was made with 12 oz of assorted worsted weight wool yarns (about 750 yards) and a size K (6.5 mm) crochet hook.

The bag stands 12" tall and 30" around.

The pattern has been tested with Cascade 200, Patons Classic Wool, and Plymouth Boku. If you use another brand, you may wish to felt a swatch before you begin and make any necessary adjustments.

One of my Ravelry testers, Vikki, gave the bag it's name. Thanks, Vikki!

The pattern sells for $3.00 through my Ravelry pattern store.
