Aspire Felted Tote Bag Knitting Kit

If you've never tried machine (washing machine) felting before this is a great project for your first "journey".

The bag is knitted in the round on 6.50mm needles throughout - the base is worked flat in garter stitch, stitches then picked up all around the base, a marker placed to indicate the beginning of the round and then .............. just follow the pattern.  All the shaping is worked as you go.  The bag is quite MAHOOSIVE when you've finished knitting it, but now you've reached the fun part -stick it in the washer to SHRINK it - yes - you shrink it INTENTIONALLY!!  (Who hasn't done it unintentionally with their favourite jumper?!!)

Instructions are given on the pattern for the "felting" process and the pulling to shape.

You will need 1 x 6.50mm circular needle (80cm or 100cm), 1 pair of 6.50mm knitting needles and 2 small stitch holders or nappy pins.

Included in the Kit:  4 x Wendy "Aspire" Chunky (80% Wool/20% Alpaca) yarn, 1 x Large coconut shell button and knitting pattern with full, easy-to-follow instructions.
