Item details

Large and roomy, the Ashling Tote is the perfect opportunity to explore your creativity in the realm of wearable art. With double-stranding and moderate felting, you'll retain stitch detail without sacrificing thickness and durability.

**Please note**: This item is a pattern in the form of a pdf file. The file will be available as a download once payment is confirmed. Pattern includes 7 pages of very detailed instructions and photos for every step of the process.

♥ Pattern name: Ashling Tote

This is the version for using Briggs & Little Heritage wool.

Embroidery instructions given are very basic, but I do include one of my favorite tips in laying out your design on the bag.

Approximate finished size: 15" wide, 11" high, and depth of base is 5"


Difficulty level: advanced beginner

4 skeins/880 yards of Briggs & Little Heritage wool (worsted weight) (other wool may yield different final dimensions - see note below)

Size US 11 / 8mm circular needle, 29" long

Size US 11 / 8mm straight needles for doing strap, if desired, but not necessary.

One size US L / 8mm crochet hook

3/16" thick foam board for a sturdy base (available at Michaels) *optional


Using Cascade 220 Wool:

Using this will yield slightly different results. For one thing, more detail tends to be lost, unless you are extra diligent in monitoring the felting process. Width also tends to be lost, along with some height.

I will be offering a specific Cascade 200 version in the near future.

*color in pattern is called "Fern Green"
