*4 page knitting pattern * Felting instructions
This simple knot bag fascinated me when I first spotted a beautiful version made from vintage kimono fabric. I just had to see if I could replicate the smooth curves and interesting knotted loop closure. This is a medium size bag carried with your hand through the large loop and the bag hanging down. The large loop passes through the small loop to close the bag and the felt folds gently to give the great curves. This bag is knitted in Filz (felting) wool which will shrink when washed to create a thick felt fabric.
Felted size- 25 cm / 10” wide x 20cm / 8” high Strap length approx. 24cm /9”
