The Yarn I Used

I made the bags using The Petite Wool in three colors, knit on size 6 mm (US 10) knitting needles.

This yarn is from We Are Knitters and comes in a range of lovely colors.

This yarn is very warm to wear as it is 100% Peruvian wool.

Each ball is 100 GR. Per 140 M, and the yarn weight is bulky/chunky/12 ply.

This pattern is great for any beginner knitters, as the bags are knit flat – back and forth on the needles.
