Everyday Textured Tote Reviewed by Deborah Hollingsworth on 2012-10-11 *****
I get more compliments on this one bag. I used black worsted weight all cotton yarn and variegated worsted weight all cotton yarn. Everyone loves it and it is such an easy pattern to do.

Love the tote. I use mine to store my knitting supplies. The tote is very sturdy.

I agree with the previous reviewer- the bag turned out great- but I made some changes to the pattern. First- I used Nantucket instead of Spice for the Wool-Ease Chunky. Second- instead of doing the straps as 2 seperate pieces I knitted them as one. (Sewed the bag together and then joined the 8 stitches from the front and back onto one needle and then completed a 3 needle bind off). I'm now making a second bag- but will probably not make it as wide, knit in the round and also make the straps alittle thinner- Either way it came out AWESOME! and its an easy pattern for a new knitter.

I love this pattern, but used different colors--black for the thick and taupe for thin--and only increased to 40 stitches. It was just too large for me, otherwise.

I altered the finishing a bit, as well. Before I seamed the sides, I first seamed across the bottom of the bag (right sides together), which created a sturdier "bottom" for the bag, because of the added thickness, and resulted in a more square bag. I then added a large button to one side about 2 inches down, and then made an I-cord on the other side to wrap around the button as a closure.

This is a great bag--sturdy, beautiful, and practical.
