Shown in Kauni Effekt 8/2 yarn, 100% wool (400 m./437 yds. per 100 g.), colour W-EH, “Earth and Sky”.


Combine the gradual striping sequence of a unique yarn like Kauni Effekt with the geometric construction of a messenger bag and you will have a one-of-a-kind carry-all.

Knit in three separate pieces that are then pieced together and felted in the washing machine, this satchel is the perfect size for your everyday needs. Large enough to carry a laptop computer or your library books, without being oversized.

Kauni Effekt 8/2 is held tripled using the Navajo Triple-Ply Technique. This technique is fully described (with detailed photos) in the pattern instructions.
