Friesland tote bag

Love this, beautiful yarn, great value. First time I've made anything like this, so not perfect by any means, but really pleased with finished bag.

Enjoying this lovely bag

Can't praise this pattern enough. I'm really enjoying knitting up this pretty bag. The yarn is beautiful and the pattern very pretty. Thanks to the person for the tip on keeping place on the main pattern. I photocopied that part zoomed in a little to help me. Overall a lovely knitting experience. Have ordered yarn for a second in different colours.

pattern for bag

Really well written pattern. Haven't yet finished it, but am enjoying knitting it. Afew tips for other purchasers: when knitting from the chart, I have put a marker at every 20 stitches also use a piece of paper to follow the row. It is very easy to lose your place, hope these tips help.
