NORDNORGE KNITTED BAG
8 Page printed brochure pattern.
Pattern only available in UK terminology.
I designed this hand knitted fairisle bag a few years ago for a trip I tutored on a cruise ship around the coast of Norway. I looked at traditional Norwegian patterns and added beads to areas to create more interest.
The bag is knitted in the round and the pattern includes instructions on how to make a Dorset button.
