If you follow fashion trends, you know that knitted bags are all the rage. They're also absurdly overpriced, especially if you're a knitter and know that -- if you just had a decent pattern -- you could make them yourself.
The book has a diverse variety of patterns to suit most tastes. For example, there's a Jackie O.-inspired Chunky Tote, a sheep-shaped backpack for kids, and a Paisley Carry-All that would make a great bag to hold knitting projects. I've already picked three bags to make as Christmas gifts, and I'm confident I'll soon be knitting up others.
Knitting difficulty ranges from beginner -- with six Very Easy, Very Vogue patterns -- to 13 intermediate patterns and eight experienced patterns.
