Knit It Then Felt It Bag

Bags come in all shapes and sizes, and in this class, you will be the boss of your bag! We’ll narrow the focus a bit, to make a knitting project bag. We’ll start with basic shapes, work up the fabric as we like, then we’ll wet-felt the bag, either by hand or by machine wash. We’ll add reinforcements (so the bag stands up), a lining, and other embellishments, as you like. This is a great project to try out any of those colorwork techniques you’ve been curious about, and big chunky cable patterns, too. After this class, you’ll have the skills and creative permission you need to make any bag you want!

This class is taught via Zoom. Class and session length: This class is 4 2-hour sessions.

Prerequisite knowledge: Comfortable with knit stitch and purl stitch; know at least one cast on and bind off method; know at least one increase and decrease method; know the difference between stockinette and garter stitch fabrics.

There are some technology requirements: students should access the video portion of class with something larger than a smart phone, and it’s best if the same device has both 2-way audio and video, so teacher and student can both see and hear each other well. However, students could access class using one device for audio and one device for video. Not sure if your device(s) will work? Ask for a ‘tech check’ and we’ll connect you with the teacher to run a test before you sign up for class. Students should also have a way to view and print PDF handouts.
