Turn Again Tote

"Here's a bag with pockets," announces Abel, "inside & out! Lots of places to stash your stuff. It can be large enough for a knitting tote (of course) or small enough for a handbag. The construction is unique; the entire bag is knitted as one unit, so no seams! Shown in Cascade Eco Wool (largest in brown), Cascade 220 (medium in green/blue), and a mix of sport weights (small in red/black), with wonderful handles from Homestead Heirlooms." An ingenious pattern, intriguing and with lots of tips, photos, and diagrams for 3-needle-bind-offs, felting, and knitting up stitches. Gauge varies depending on size; gauges given are sport, worsted, and aran/chunky yarns respectively, pre-felting.
