This bright and jaunty bag is worked in the colours of the Gulf waters lapping the Florida coast. It features bands of Basketweave set into a background of Double Moss Stitch, giving it an understated elegance.
The knitted bag is lined with a craft-store canvas tote which has been dyed to match the colour of the yarn. The final result is sturdy and modern - just perfect for a trip to the shopping mall or a day at the beach.
