My sister wants me to make her a felted bag that calls for size 13 needles, and two strands of yarn held together, totalling about 1650 yards of yarn.
This bag: http://www.knitpicks.com/Projects/Pr...yarnid=5420103
The yarn she bought, 1650 yards of it, says for gauge on the label; needle size: 1-3...
Evidently, I need to give her a lesson on what the info on the lables mean... An oversight on my part.
any ideas how i can make the yarn work in the pattern? She wanted a pretty big bag. The pattern above says to CO 60 sts (for the largest size) and work about 30 rows, then pick up around this rectangle and switch to circs...so the # of stitches when it's in the round will be about...180. If I made this pattern with the really small needles, won't the bag be really small? Is there any other option?
Thanks for your help, you are all awesome!
