LOPI LITE Felted Book Bag

I couldn’t leave this alone. I had the compulsion to do more.

It’s done, or is it. It was intended to be a carry bag for Library books.

THE HOW & THE WHAT
It was knit on the diagonal, starting with 3 stitches, increasing 1 stitch at the start of every row. The black was 50gm, the darker shade of green was 50gm, the 3rd colour was almost 100gm. I used Lopi Lite yarn on a 6mm needle.

The bag measured 14in X14in AFTER felting.
The stitch was garter stitch, but it could be knit on the knitting machine quite readily.
It was a good “take along” project.

This is the closure that finished up the project.
