Designer: Katherine Vaughan
This bag is modeled on ditty bags used by sailors for all of their gear. Those bags are an iconic shape: tall, with a circular base and straight sides, with a strap threaded through grommets around the top and fastened with a braided carrying handle. This version is smaller than its canvas cousin, and the handle is knit and stuffed rather than braided. The simple shape of the bag allows for handspun Monster Yarn to show off its color and texture changes without any competition.

Needles: US11 [8 mm] 20” [50 cm] circular or DPNs.
