Pattern: Savvy Shopper by Kollage Yarns
Yarn: Kollage Riveting Worsted – 2 skeins
This is the perfect project to work on while you’re watching TV, socializing at Stitch Night, or while traveling. The stitch pattern is the same every single row (with the exception of the garter stitch at the top and bottom), so you never have to keep track of where you are in the pattern. Some situations just call for this kind of knitting! It was also a fairly quick project, so you have plenty of time to knit one for yourself to use for all of your summer shopping!
The Savvy Shopper bag is knit flat so that the side seams can provide a bit more stability to the bag.
The Riveting Worsted is made from recycled blue jeans, so it has a bit of a tweedy look to it, which I love! Despite the yarn being 100% cotton, it was never hard on my hands and it also softened up quite a bit after a trip through the washer and dryer.
We have a variety of colors to choose from including a couple that look just like your favorite pair of worn blue jeans! The Savvy Shopper bag pattern is available at the shop in a kit that comes with 2 skeins of Riveting Worsted and a handy bag to store your WIP for only $20! Stop on in to get started on your very own cute and functional bag!
