If you are making that bag any bigger, I'd surely double strand on #13s. And then aggressive felting and aggressive blocking make for a much crisper finish. I try to find a box that is just a...

faux fox wrap/scarf

Does anyone remember a pattern for a faux fox wrap, complete with head and tail, and even paws?

I know I saw it somewhere, and drat if I did not bookmark.

Berets look good on everyone! And they don't crush your hair.

At our house, we say:

Front to back,
Around the back and in between,
Through the window,

You could do a provisional cast-on and kitchener stitch the ends together to make a cylander.

As far as the chart, I'll leave that to other, wiser knitters!
