Amanda's Squatty Sidekick - I'm addicted to this pattern
I got this pattern emailed to me last week. I thought the bag was cute so I made one.... It stayed mine for less than 24 hours. My friend wanted it so I gave it to her (the blue one). My mom saw a picture and she wanted a black one she could use when she went out so I made her one with Cascade 220 and a strand of Ritrato. I ran out of yarn when I got to the handle so I bought some more and made a second just a little smaller. Then another friend saw it - she likes her stuff funky and "sassy" (her word) so she is getting the purple one.

This is a great pattern - fun and easy to knit. It is so clever how the handle and the button hole are made... If you like to felt try this bag. It is a free pattern on knitting daily.

Here are the pics:

Love those! I printed out the pattern a few weeks ago and am thinking of making one for my daughter. After seeing yours, I think I'll give it a go.

Very nice! I didn't notice this pattern in my email ~ the yarns you used look great and attracted my attention, so I'm glad you posted your photos. Thank you.

okay, freaky - this pattern is popular cos guess what? I found it while googling for free patterns for felted bags and found this site for some help and there are at least 3 threads on this pattern - wow!

I'm in NZ and have no idea what our equivalent of worsted weight yarn is so I experimented by knitting two swatches (and I never do swatches!) to felt - one single strand 8ply (double knit) yummy purple (think Fanta Grape) and the other with 2 strands of 8ply (1 strand is light/pale green, the other dusky pink). I decided to go with the single strand cos it took less time to felt and though not as sturdy thought it should be okay as the bag is for a 10yo's birthday next week. But for myself, I think I will go double strand.

Now my other question, what if I crocheted some acrylic frilly yarn to the edges at the top(where the opening is)? Acrylic won't felt so will it just come away? I just thought it might make it more purty and girly girl for the 10yo.
