Scandal in Bohemia PDF

Designer: Anne Podlesak

Perhaps you’ll never have to make your escape from Sherlock Holmes, but everyone, including Irene Adler, needs a roomy messenger-style bag to carry all the essentials for an extended road trip. This is a great project to use up scrap yarns; pick as many colors as you’d like to knit the flap, and then decorate with embroidery, buttons, or small found trinkets as desired.

Materials: Main color (MC)-about 275 yds [251 m] of a DK/light-worsted feltable (not superwash) yarn. Contrast colors (Ccs) – small amounts totalling approximately 175 yds [160 m] of scraps of the same weight as the MC (also not superwash). This pattern is not suitable for superwash wools.
Yarn Details: Various Bluefaced Leicester rovings were spun worsted-style (aka inchworm) to create a dense 2-ply yarn. The finished yarns were approximately 250 yds per 4oz (or 1000 ypp).
Needles: US5 [3.75mm] 24” [60 cm] circs and 2 DPNs the same size.
Gauge: 5 stiches per 1” [2.54 cm] in stockinette (fabric should be a little less dense than you would usually knit as this bag will be fulled)
Finished Sizes: (BEFORE fulling): 13″[33 cm] wide x 10″ [25 cm] tall x 2-3/4″ [7 cm] deep. (AFTER fulling): 12″ [30.5 cm] wide x 8-1/4″ [21 cm] tall x 2-1/2″ [6.4 cm] deep
Other: tapestry needle for darning in ends, stitch markers. Optional: decorative charms, embroidery floss, lining fabric.
