Easy and fun to knit and construct, this project bag is colorful, lightweight, and roomy enough to hold your work in progress (WIP)! Each section is knitted in garter stitch, picking up edges at the start of a new section, sewn together and thrown in the washer to felt. The Noro Kureyon provides the colorful striping that makes this bag a stunner! The bag features Coco Knit leather handles or you can create I-cord handles, if you prefer.
This rustic wool yarn celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2018. An excellent choice when knitting or crocheting outerwear garments and for felting (fulling) projects. This beloved yarn has a devoted following. The name reflects how people in Japan say "crayon".
Kureyon has two plies. It can be a little difficult to see, because the yarn has such a “rustic” loosely spun effect, but if you untwist it you will definitely get two plies in your hand. It’s how they get the striated effect that shows up in some dye lots (like, black and orange blurred together.)
