View Full Version : Sophie bag

I've knitted about 4 booga bags and 2 Lucy bags - and I gave them all away. I wanted to try a new pattern and finally do a purse for me, so I chose a Sophie bag for me. I used WOTA. I ran it through the washer once to felt it...and it's the tiniest purse I've ever seen! :roflhard: I guess my 8-year-old daughter now has a new purse!

Yeah.... its not huge. But, Black Sheep has a similar pattern called the Elizabeth bag... MUCH bigger, but the same shape and with more options for the strap.

Keep in mind too, Ronda... that different wool yarns felt at different rates.
I found that Cascade made a very small Sophie bag, but I got better results with Crystal Palace Fjord and Noro Kureyon. I wouldn't give up on the pattern, but maybe try it with a different yarn.

Thanks, Wynnie. I like the way WOTA felts. It seems so sturdy and thick, but maybe it does shrink more than Cascade, which is the yarn used for the pattern.
