Get a jump on summer! Join us for our next Pre-Pay KAL - Summer Commitment bag by Espace Tricot! It is the perfect bag for strolling around town, going to market, or a day at the beach! The bottom is knit flat and then stitches are picked up for knitting the main body in the round. Straps are then knit flat one at a time and are joined using Kitchener stitch. If you wish to knit a cross-body style bag then an extra skein of yarn will be required. You can also make my modified version where I added Jul Designs Forager Flat Strap Screw-In Leather Handles.
5 skeins Filatura di Crosa Kilim (65% jute, 35% acrylic; 68 m / 71 yds)
Colour A – 2 skeins
Colour B – 3 skeins
* If you wish to make the straps longer for a cross-‐body style bag you will need an extra skein of colour B.
Needles & Notions
6.0 mm (US 10) 24” circular needle or size required to obtain gauge. If your gauge is tighter when knitting in the round, you may want to use a needle one size smaller to knit the bottom and straps of the bag, which are knit flat. Note - I do not recommend wooden or bamboo needles for this bag.
2 stitch holders
15 sts and 19 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch in the round after blocking
Width at base: 13”
