felted bucket bags pattern

designed by our best customer, Sue Burke, this easy-to-knit bag pairs solitude wool’s Targhee 2-ply and Karakul yarns. The bag is knit in seed stitch for a subtle basket-like texture, then hand-felted for a sturdy fabric. Instructions for three sizes of round-bottom bags—the bucket, tote and mini-bucket plus a clutch-style wristlet are included! One of the most fun parts of the pattern is choosing colors. It will change as you felt it with the Karakul yarn dominating in the final fabric.
