This tote begins at the bottom, knit flat. Stitches are picked up around the bottom, and the rest of the bag is knit in the round. Handles are made with gigantic i-cord! A very fun project to felt. Choose a non-superwash wool!

Base is 4” x 9”, bag is about 10 inches tall. Gauge is not critical, because the bag will be felted.

Bag is knit on a 24” circular needle. You will need two double pointed needles to knit the i-cord.
