Sturdy totes to use as knitting project totes, shopping or travel bags. Knit in double strand 8 ply (DK) weight yarn. Adding novelty yarn is optional.
Approximate, as size will vary with the amount of felting and yarn choice.
Small: 13″ (33cm) wide, 12″ (30cm) deep;
Medium: 17″ (43cm) wide, 14″ (36cm) deep;
Large: 18″ (46cm) wide, 17″ (43cm) deep.
Main Yarn: 650 (1030, 1350) yds (594 (941, 1234) meters) of DK weight wool that will felt quickly and easily.
Yarn is used double throughout.
Novelty yarn: 70 (100, 125) yds (64 (91, 114) meters)
This yarn is not intended to felt, instead it is held in with the felted wool. Choose a yarn with a fine core (binder thread) so that it will not cause a large change in the felted gauge of the wool.
