Karen came in last week and showed us the Lucy bag that she made. She made it out of Noro, which self-stripes. A friend saw her bag, so she is now making her one.
The pattern has instructions for a handbag or a shoulder bag when using medium weight yarn, and for an evening bag using sport weight yarn. All versions have clever straps of differing lengths to hold the bag closed.
Finished sizes: Depending on wool choice, gauge and amount of felting: Small bag: 8.5" tall; 17.5" circumfrence. Large bag: 11.5" tall; 24" circumfrence
