    Heres my first Christmas Knot Bag! LOVE IT!

    1- photo
    2-KnitPicks Wool of the Andes/100% Peruvian Highland Wool/ color Victorian
    3-164 yds
    4-Time it took-- well for me it was a couple of days off and on. But one could complete in a day with just knitting ( just a few hours)
    5-This was not a difficult pattern to follow. I used the chart and the written instructions are well done. I did enjoy knitting this project


    Extra notes- I tried the Jeny's Surprisingly stretchy cast off (which I think is really neat how it works) but my cuff was way to big (its my knitting) so I just used a regular bind off. A lot tighter but it worked better for my bag. I would like to do this bag in a different type of yarn, something with a sheen to it would be awesome. This bag has so many possibilities, adding beads, embroidery, a very light felting would be interesting. Its a beautiful bag design and I can't wait to see how others knitted theirs. Thank You again Char

    This bag is right off the needles so unwashed and blocked.

    I have completed the test knit on your Christmas Knot Bag! What an enjoyable project 🙂

    Information:

    1 - photo - attached
    2 - yarn is Patons Hempster, DK in red
    3- total needed - 74 grams, 141 yards
    4 - Time for completion - I would say 8 -10 hours knitting time.
    5 - Pattern: I feel it would be an easy project even for beginners. Very nice, well written, an enjoyable knit. I envision making more of other sizes to use for project bags 🙂

    Thank you, Char, for the opportunity to test this for you 🐑
