Slide your gear into the large pouch of this bag and then fold it over to create the perfect space to cradle your yoga mat. Haven't tried felting yet? This yoga mat carrier is a great first felt project!

Felted Zen Tote

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool


12 single crochet and 15 rows = 5 in. [12.5 cm] before felting. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Chain 103. Slip stitch in beginning chain to form a ring.
Round 1:
Chain 1, single crochet in each chain around. Slip stitch in beginning single crochet to join – 103 single crochet.
Round 2:
Chain 1, single crochet in each single crochet around. Slip stitch in beginning single crochet to join.
Repeat Round 2 until piece measures 34 in. [87 cm] from beginning. Fasten off.

STRAP (make 2)
Chain 8.
Row 1:
Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across – 7 single crochet.
Row 2:
Chain 1, turn, single crochet in each single crochet across.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 24 in. [61 cm] from beginning.
Fasten off.

Sew a Strap inside Bag at one open end. Sew this end shut. Sew 2nd strap at opposite end of Bag.
Weave in ends.

Wash by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. To felt additionally, dry by machine on a regular setting until almost dry. Remove from dryer and pull into shape. Allow to dry completely.
