This handy tote can carry your gym clothes, your shopping, or your next knitting project. It can be your purse, with plenty of room for those things you need every day. How about a lunch bag? Whatever you use it for, Goshen is practical and pretty. It is knit in colorful Medina in a 4-row pattern stitch that looks a little like crochet. The front and back are worked separately and sewn together at the sides and center point of the strap. Finished measurements are 12" wide and 11.5" high, not including the strap. Berroco has given this Donna Yacino design a difficulty rating of intermediate.
Medina is a summer dream, with one warm color flowing into another. It blends 37% cotton with 36% acrylic and 27% viscose for a breathable yarn that makes great warm-weather garments. It is a DK weight yarn and is knit firmly here at 6 stitches per inch in the pattern stitch. Medina can be machine washed in cold on delicate and dried flat. Due to the print effect, some dye may release during the laundering process.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point or curcular needles in US size 8 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- 2 stitch markers
- tapestry needle
Goshen is shown in Medina color 4772 Melilla. If you'd like your bag to be in the same color, simply order the kit above. To pick a different color, see our Medina page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and specify your color choice in the box above.
