Knitted Loop BagBy Irene Israel
Irene Israel has created a playful design that will appeal to newer knitters looking to craft a useful accessory practising only basic stitches, and to anyone who enjoys experimenting with colour! In the featured colourway, seven shades of Scheepjes Softfun are layered in contrasting stripes of varying widths, creating a vibrant version of the Knitted Loop Bag. The top edge and asymmetrical handles are knitted in textured moss stitch, which looks just as good on the reverse, and gives durability to this handy tote measuring 30 x 41cm (plus handles). It can hold a surprising amount! Simply slip the longer handle through the shorter one to close the bag and keep contents safely enclosed.
