Pattern for Sale: Alison Tote

Tuesday, April 01, 2008
Felted tote using one skein of Malabrigo Worsted wool. This tote uses cables to add detailing to the flap and sides, and has decreases at the bottom to give depth. The strap is adjustable; mods suggested by testers exist (see projects). A joy to knit - both because of the yarn and the pattern - and looks great either felted or unfelted and with a lining.

Skills needed: Cabling, cable cast-on, knitting in the round, three-needle bindoff, I-cord, felting.

Available in my Ravelry Shop (no registration necessary; pay by PayPal) for $5!

    I love it - thank you! - what a wonderful birthday present! Now I just have to go find the perfect color of malabrigo - the verdes I have is a little on the bright green / watermelony side :)
