81 Felted Retro Chain Stitch Bag

We are struck by how at home these would look on Mad Men, proving once again that really rocking style can be at once specific and universal. "A felted bag in 2 sizes," says Hanson very simply. "For the small bag, work with a single strand of worsted weight throughout, except for handles. For the large bag, work with a double strand of worsted weight, or a single strand of bulky weight throughout." And of course it's a mosaic/slip stitch pattern, so you only use one color per round (base is knit flat, the body in the round).
