Trio-Knit Bag - October 2004

Original Post

Pattern: from Crystal Palace Yarns.

Yarns Used: Lion Brand Homespun in Edwardian and Gothic.

Comments: Definitely much more floppy than if knit with the yarns called for in the pattern - and I think I got carried away with the depth of the bag - If I knit it again, I'd definitely not make it quite so deep. I'm not convinced I made the best choice for yarns here - while the fabric is nice and soft, the bag itself is quite floppy and stretchy - and the boucle yarn is prone to snagging :( Going with a yarn closer to the "Trio" will probably result in a sturdier fabric.
