Felted Big Bag remix, A Bag for everything!

I knitted this pattern once, and loved it so much I decided to do it again! I use my first bag constantly, and love the size, which is 16 long x 14 wide. This time I want to knit it in some vibrant colors, and make the stripes really stand out! I’m in the mood for some happy colors! I know another bag, I like to have a variety of sized bags to carry my flotsam and jetsam to work and around.
Pattern: Baby’s Got a Brand New Big Bag from Maia Discoe (pdf link), (love this pattern, I’m thinking of making a purse sized one soon, maybe decreasing the stitches by about 60 to 70%?)
Yarn: Black, leftover from some projects, yellow, hand dyed by me, multi color orange, red and yellow, hand dyed by me, and some orange Malabrigo
Needle size: 10.5 circulars
OK, so a little further..

Before felting and after
Felting was done in my top loader, measurements before were 17 inches wide x 19 inches long, after felting measurements are 15 x 15, which is an estimated of felting shrinkage of approximately 10% decrease in width and 30% in height. See my post on my first time felting in a front loader with tips.
This bag is so sturdy and holds a lot! The handles are sturdy! These colors make me smile, I can fit everything I need in here to carry to work, and included some knitting also.
This bag is suitable for a laptop also, with room for other paperwork.
These colors make me smile, they make me think of summer. Tomatoes turning from yellow to red, there is nothing like eating a sun warm tomato right out of the garden!
Yay!! Another bag to carry my stuff in!! I love these!!! I’m working on a crochet version of it now, pattern to follow, for anyone who is interested.
May your knitting needles fly as fast as dragonflies…

  2. Vicki! You've done it again! While I added a modest few rows to my current project you've started and finished one! LOL!!!

    I love this bag. Tried to follow the link a couple of times but nothing came up.

  3. I love the stripe pattern! I love everything stripey - so I copied the pdf -thanks for sharing!

  4. Those colors remind me of riding my bike to work in the early hour of the morning; still-dark horizon and coral clouds streaked with sun. Very cool!
