In this week’s newsletter I mentioned that Sandy would be teaching a class on felting. The pattern is for a basic bag knit in the round on circular needles. Many of you may already be familiar with this design, The Booga Bag. It has more than 3500 projects on Ravelry!
It’s a wonderful introduction to felting, as well as to knitting in the round. Because the fabric felts into perfect evenness, it’s a terrific project for beginning knitters. It’s also a good pattern for when you just need some mindless knitting to go with your wine on Wednesday nights!
The pattern is free, but copyright laws prohibit me from distributing the pattern. Just go to the require that each individual user print the pattern for herself (or himself). So, here’s where you can get the pattern – just click on the “visit pattern website” link.
Bring or buy at class a 16″ or 24″ circular needle size 10 or 10.5. The smaller needle will produce a smaller bag as shown above; the larger needle makes a larger one, like the sample in La Plata. Both are darling. See you Friday at 10:30!
