Rustic Knitted Bag
Here is the finished Knitted Rustic Bag I've been working on. I really like the stick handles, and I used a turned, interfaced rectangle as the lining, and added turned, divided pockets on each side, and a magnetic snap as a closure. You can see photos of the bag before I cut the extra length from the handles, and of the interior if you click here.
I used a chunky weight cotton yarn from Portugal called Rosarios 4. It took exactly one skein, and I had none left over, not even an inch. I got this idea and pattern from Cast Away and the pattern from Yarniverse's Free Patterns.
I'm quite pleased with the finished product, and it will be a fun summer bag.
