Moutarde Tas Part Deux

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!

    Your project bag is lovely and I really like the rolled brim on the top. It’s a fair sized bag if it can hold your scarf which I’m looking forward to seeing.

    I’m a fan of the second one more….but I don’t know why.

    Also, for picking up stitches: if you do a slip-stitch edge, it makes picking up stitches much easier because you can just poke your needle through the slipped stitches. I do it for socks when I have to pick up from the heel flap.
