Fun Hexagon Bag
I first knit this bag in about 2012 or so. I fell in love with it when I saw it in the magazine and vowed to make it, a birthday present to myself.
I would say it was about $50-$60 to knit not $100 it knit up beautifully and if you have any experience knitting you will enjoy it and it knits reasonably quickly. Probably not for a beginner, I am about to knit my second one as a gift, it is a beautiful bag and the felting is an added bonus. the color and contrast are wonderful to see as you do not quite know how it will turn out until you are making it, enjoy,
Review by Louise (Posted on 3/27/2015)
Project review - seems to be a lovely bag but expensive
OK, first of all, if you purchase all the recommended items the materials themselves will be over $100. EXPENSIVE.
Instructions are easy to follow for an intermediate knitter. One problems is that the pattern does not specify very clearly where to pick up stitches for hexagon 2 and 3, and such, so that you may have to purl rather than knit your hexagon. No problem if you are a bit more wise knitter. Just be aware of that. Hexagon 4 seems to be a no brainer! Also, a bit of a concern is how the felting will go by the hand method. No explanation of that. If you have the new front loading washers, there is no agitator cycle, so how to felt? Read and study hand felting on the internet. Otherwise this looks like a cute project. Also wondering how I will prevent contents in the bag from falling out of the $100+ bag? No snap specified . May have to improvise!
