I was going to start on a modified booga bag yesterday - what I am going to use is Elann’s Peruvian Chunky for the base and straps, and a corresponding Noro Kureyon for the body.
Here are the specs on the chunky:
Here is the pattern I am sorta using:
So I doubled up the Elann’s, and did it on size 11’s and the base appears VERY chunky - pre-felted - so I am thinking it is going to be too much when I felt. Like it can only shrink so far and maybe the base is going to end up distorted? Would I be better off just using a single strand of this? I think it will still be more sturdy than the Noro - my gut is telling me that this is the answer, but I need advise for you experts!
As you all know, the Elanns is cheap - but I hate to blow it with the Noro - that stuff is like gold!
