The Fair Isle Bag is an intermediate to advanced color knitting project and is intended as a learning experience by knitting the bag flat. (To get the kit for knitting it in the round, choose the item "Fair Isle Bag Yarn Kit (knitted circularly)", which requires an extra skein of yarn.) The bag measures about 11" (28 cm) wide, 3.5" (9 cm) deep, and 11.5" (29 cm) tall.
Knitted Flat The pattern emphasizes the Continental knitting method with many photos and explanations, but it can be knitted in the English style as well. It has been designed to be knitted flat for practicing knitting and purling in two colors, but there are also alternate directions at the end of the pattern for knitting the bag in the round. The bottom of the bag is worked in Corrugated Ribbing for strength and durability. The bag closes with twisted cording made from the yarns.
This kit includes 8 skeins of RAUMA Strikkegarn and the pattern to knit the bag FLAT.

The pattern has been designed to be knitted flat for practicing knitting and purling in two colors, but there are alternate directions at the end of the pattern for knitting the bag in the round, beginning with the base. The bottom of the bag is worked in Corrugated Ribbing for strength and durability, and stitches are picked up around the base for the rest of the bag. The bag closes with twisted cording made from the yarns.
This kit includes 9 skeins of RAUMA Strikkegarn and the pattern to knit the bag CIRCULARLY.

This is a great kit! The instruction booklet is fantasticly put together and teaches some wonderful new techniques for both purling and knitting. It is in color and the charts are quite clear.
