Graphic Elements Tote Reviewed by Laurel Stedman on 2012-07-20 ****
From Laurel in Texas: This pattern is relatively easy to make and a good start to knitting a design using a chart. There were a couple of errors in the chart, but they're easy to correct. The handles are a little hard to find but they can be found at, a local store here, but with sales on-line.

I would suggest that, if making this tote, the sides be left unsewn for about 6 1/2 inches rather than 5 1/2. This helps the top open wider so you can see what's inside.

I knitted this tote and the pattern was perfect in every way. It was fun to knit and I have gotten many compliments.

absolutely LOVED this pattern. It was my first crack at fair isle knitting, but the instructions were clear & well written! I highly recommend this project - it turned out beautiful

Graphic Elements Tote Reviewed by KATHARINA MILLS on 2008-10-18 ***
This is a very unique bag and it is easy and fast to make. Downloading the instructions and chart was not difficult, but I was not pleased to find out that the pattern was not a quality product. The instructions were faultless, but the snowflake chart had the color symbols wrong and I found three mistakes/misprints in the chart. The most challenging part of the whole project was locating the required 4 x 8 rectangle purse handles. I searched high and low for them and the best I could find was a pair of 8" D-shaped handles. Because of all these challenges, I gave the tote three stars only. However, despite all the problems, I like the bag and if I ever stumble over the right kind of handles, I might try to knit another one.
