Around Town Felted Bag

Lion Brand« Lion« Wool

GAUGE:

12 stitches + 15 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] before felting in single crochet or Stockinette stitch (knit every round).

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

CROCHET BAG
Base

With A, chain 31.
Row 1: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across – 30 single crochet.
Row 2: Chain 1, turn, single crochet in each single crochet across.
Repeat last row 6 more times.

Sides

Work 8 single crochet evenly spaced across short side of piece. Work 30 single crochet along opposite side of beginning chain. Work 8 single crochet evenly spaced across remaining short side of piece - 76 single crochet around base.
Single crochet in each single crochet around until Bag measures 5½ in. [14 cm] from base. Fasten off A and join B. With B, continue in single crochet around until Bag measures 10 in. [25.5 cm] from base. Fasten off.

KNIT BAG
Base

With A, cast on 30 stitches. Working back and forth on circular needle (just as when working on straight needles), knit 4 rows. Pick up and knit 8 stitches along short side of piece, 30 stitches along cast on edge and 8 stitches along remaining short side – 76 stitches around base.

Sides

Place marker for beginning of round and join, being careful not to twist stitches. Working in the round, knit every round until Bag measures 5½ in. [14 cm] from base. Change to B. With B, knit every round until Bag measures 10 in. [25.5 cm] from base. Bind off.

FINISHING

Weave in ends.

FELTING

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. For more about felting, click here.

Handle

After felting, cut a 3½ in. [8.75 cm] slit centered on back of Bag, about 1½ in. [3.75 cm] down from top edge. Repeat on front.

Around Town Felted Bag Reviewed by Linda Graimm on 2008-09-04 *****
This bag worked up very quickly and I used brighter colors. I found the pattern easy to follow. I felted it a bit more than shown because I wanted no spaces in the stitches. It was easy and great to make. And I gave one as a gift and they loved it! Thanks for the free patterns.
