Distant Hills

Even if you don’t live near a mountain range, you can evoke the mood of the landscape with this felted tote bag.

Worked in the round from the base up, its features include an inside pocket and long, doubled handles that form part of the bag’s hilly motif. The stranded sections tend to tighten the fabric, resulting in the bag’s vessel-like shape.

The sample pictured is knit with Cascade The Heathers 200, 100% Peruvian wool, (200 m./220 yds. per 100 g. skein), worked in four colours.
