Windy City Tote

Lion Brand« Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) 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

TOTE
With A, cast on 86 sts.
Rows 1-5: With A, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
Rows 6-10: With B, work in St st.
Rep Rows 1-10, 21 more times, then rep Rows 1-5 once.
Bind off.

HANDLES (make 2)
With A, cast on 7 sts. Work in St st until piece measures 35 in. (89 cm) from beginning. Bind off.

FINISHING
Fold Tote in half and sew side seams. Fold up corners and sew in place. Sew Handles to Tote 5 in. (12.5 cm) from sides and 3 in. (7.5 cm) below top edge. 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.

Windy City Tote Reviewed by Mary Ann Christenson on 2013-12-02 *****
I love this bag, turned out just like the picture. I put a velcro strip on the inside, so the bag will close.

I am enclosing before and after photo's
