This is such a versatile bag and has been in almost continual use since it was completed. In fact, I was using it to transport my next knitting project to the airport before I had actually finished off all the ends at the top! A sure sign of a winner.
For the Sarasota Shopper, I used a dye colour to suit the yarn I had chosen, but a contrasting colour could be used instead to add an extra degree of "zing" to the finished result.
The bag design features textural Basketweave bands set onto a background of Double Moss Stitch. Both of these stitches are favourites of mine and were taken from our E-book, Reversible Knitting Stitches.
The final bag has a wonderfully understated elegance – just perfect for a trip to the shopping mall. It would also be an excellent choice to carry all the essentials for a day at the beach.
Until then – Happy Knitting!
