Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Tension: 17 sts x 22 rows = 10 x 10 cm on needle size 5 mm and stocking stitch. Needle size is only recommended!

Garter st (back and forth on st): Knit all sts on all rows.

Felting: Felt the bag in washing machine on regular wash. We washed on 40 C. If the bag doesn’t felt enough the first time, wash it again on higher temperature. NOTE! The looser you knit, the more will the piece shrink.

Bag: Cast on 40 sts on needle size 4,5 mm and work 2 rows in garter sts. Change to needle size 5 mm and continue with stocking sts until work measures approx 82 cm. Change to needle size 4,5 mm again and work 2 rows in garter sts. Cast off.

Assembly: Fold bag double, but leave approx 1/5 of the total length to fold as flap. Sew sides together in outermost stitches.

Handle: Make a plait of approx 100-120 cm of 18 threads, i.e. 6 threads in each part.
Fasten/sew plait on each side of bag, on inside. Felt the bag in washing machine - see explanation above.

Zou Melody geschikt zijn om te vilten ?\r\n\r\nvriendelijke groeten

I would like to make this in Alaska with the cream color as my base and add stripes in darker colors of Alaska. Will the darker colors bleed in the felting process? If they do have a tendency to bleed, is there an additive that will prevent it? Thank you!

Dear Pamela, except for the black one, all the other Alaska colors can be felted well without getting mixed.

I loved this pattern. I made it about 1 1/2 inches larger all around and then I lined it. I have gotten many compliments on it. Definately worth it.

De afmetingen zijn na het vilten. Je zou hiervoor ook Nepal kunnen gebruiken (let op de stekenverhouding). De stekenverhouding na het vilten is ongeveer 20 st x 34 nld (te vinden onder "assortiment" "vilten"). Je kunt dan berekenen hoeveel steken je nodig hebt voor een grotere tas. Succes. Tine

Erg leuke tas! de afmeting die hierbij staat aangegeven is dat voor of na het vervilten? Kunnen we hier ook nepal garen voor gebruiken? als ik na vervilten een tas wil hebben van 35 cm breed en 25 cm hoog, wat moet dan de stekenverhouding zijn? vriendelijke groet, Corrie
