The Pirate Queen's Booty Bag
My friends birthday is a couple of months away and I want to knit her a felted bag. But anyway I decided on this pattern because my friend is a pirate nut! So that's how I decided but now I was wondering if anyone wants to knit it with me. Maybe possibly give me some pointers if you can. I'm a little shaky with double knitting and fair isle. So if your intrested leave a thread!

~Thanks

I also like that it is adaptable to other designs. I also like this technique for double knitting, rather than the knit 1, slip one method.

I like that it's changeable as well because my friend loves pirates but I could repeat the pattern for somebody else with different colors and i could put a different design.

Ok well first I have to wrangle up some cash for the yarn. I'll hopefully be able to stop at my lys soon but until then feel free to start. If anyone else want's to join feel free at any time.

This is the thing that is worrying me however. It's not buying the yarn but I'm kinda worried that i'm going to totally screw up this pattern and my friend won't get a nice from the heart present. But I'll try my hardest. Have you ever double knit?

Yes, it's not hard at ALL! If you can do k1p1 ribbing you can double knit. Promise!!! Have you seen amy's video? It's on THIS page. The directions in the pattern are very clear, so I'm sure you won't have a problem.

I ended up not using stash yarn I had to buy some "emergency" knitting supplies since I had a meeting after school today, and I forgot to bring my knitting. I noticed in the pattern that it didn't specify doubling the yarn, but I doubled it anyway... which probablly means I didn't buy enough. I'm using cascade 220 in hot pink and navy blue for the bottom, and I *think* have have enough "other" cascade 220 hot pink and black for the sides. (from an abandoned project).
