Portland Plaid City Felted Bag Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits

The Portland Plaid City Bag is a fun, updated take on a traditional plaid handbag with a modern shape. Random horizontal stripes and random vertical stripes create an unexpected plaid pattern. Use your own creativity to develop a unique plaid pattern or make the bag as pictured using the suggested pattern. If you like a more traditional plaid, make both the horizontal and vertical stripes in a uniform repeating pattern. You could also make it all one color, or with just horizontal stripes. There are unlimited possibilities for making this bag uniquely your own!

You will be able to download the patterns immediately after payment is complete.

Your purchase includes pattern support - just send me an email or convo and I'll be happy to answer your questions or help you if you get stuck.
