    I have made the corrections and changes based on your feedback - thank you so much. If you would like me to email the updated pattern let me know, otherwise it will be available in the marketplace (free) when the design competition is over.

    I cannot thank you enough knitter131 Rose the Rebel Fiber Passion for test knitting this bag! I am thrilled with the positive feedback received.

    I have completed the test knit on your Christmas Knot Bag! What an enjoyable project ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you, Char, for the opportunity to test this for you ๐Ÿ‘

    Thank you, I think it's cute like yours! Luckily I was able to get to a couple Christmas things but they already went back in hiding. I'm not ready for that yet!

    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

    Working on the tweed bag

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

    I just finished your cute little gift bag! What a fun knit to get me thinking about Christmas early this year
    1) Picture included
    2) I used Caron Simply Soft in the color dark sage. This is a weight category 4 but on the light side. I decided to use my US 4 magic loop needles so my bag wouldn't turn out way bigger but it actually turned out a little smaller than your dimensions. I think the US 5 with the weight class 4 yarn would have worked just fine.
    3) Approximately 61 grams/132 yards were used
    4) It took me about 8-10 hours to complete give or take an hour because I had many interruptions and may have lost track
    5) I would consider this project in the easy category. New knitters should have no problem following this pattern. I followed both the written instructions and the chart, both match and I didn't find any mistakes between them. The chart was very well made and easy to follow.
    6) If you didn't catch them yet....I noticed in the written instructions for round 31 it says (k1,p1) twice times. I think you meant two times or just twice. Also, in the instructions for the straps it says Round 1......., since the straps are worked flat, should this be Row 1?

    I thought this was a fun project and would like to make more with different colors, and maybe even do one in color work. Great job Char! Thanks for including me on your test!
