**Please note this is for a knitting PATTERN ONLY, not an actual bag!!**
As soon as I saw this yarn, I envisioned a chunky, cabled bag. I’ve borrowed the color way name, as I fell in love with this riot of colors and the softness of the merino wool that you expect from Malabrigo.
The bottom panel is knit flat, and then stitches are picked up around the sides so the body of the bag is knitted in the round. The easy cables are only every 10th row - you’ll be done in no time, but I can’t guarantee you won’t want to make another right away!
Finished size: Small bag (shown) is 13” wide at bottom of bag, 12” high and 3” deep; Large bag is 16” wide at bottom of bag, 14 ½” high and 3 ½” deep (Knitted height does not include handles.)

Needles: US 11 / 8 mm, 24” circular for bottom of bag; US 13 / 9 mm, 24” circular for body of bag, or size needed to obtain gauge
