I love my original Moutarde tas project bag so much, I made a second one!
My first one (pictured above) was made with Patons Classic Wool and is a sweet size.
I use it often when making small crochet and knitting projects (fits well in my work bag).
I had trouble picking up stitches (this was my first attempt), so I had done a reverse crab stitch to neaten up the edge.
This time around, I used a crochet hook to pick up the stitches resulting in a nice, clean edge.
I chose to use Patons Classic Wool Bulky this time, and honestly, I LOVE this yarn!
If I could make all project with this bulky yarn, I’d be very happy.
Allows this slow knitter to finish a project fairly quickly.
Here is my Moutarde tas Part Deux:
This time, I continued knitting in the round after the handles were made.
It resulted in a rolled brim after felting and I really like it!
Twice through the washing machine resulted in the amount of felting I wanted.
I started Purl Soho’s Color Tipped Scarf last night and this project bag holds it perfectly.
I highly recommend this pattern and it is a free pattern on Ravelry.
Joining all the other Year of Project crafters on Ravelry this week-stop by and see what everyone else is making!
