FO: Felted "Rock Star Bag"

Hi there! This is my first bag and I am sooo happy with the way it turned out! I don’t feel that the pictures do justice to the orange, orange-yellow and navy blue colors that I picked…but…it’s okay, lol.

The pattern is free from DIYNetwork.com (http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4813531,00.html). I used Galway worsted wool yarn and sizes 7 and 9 needles. The Swiss darning (duplicate stitch) technique for the colorwork was really fun!

I’m attaching 3 pictures…one of the bag before felting, and two afterwards. :smiley:

oh, thats pretty!

Wow - that is really beautiful work. You should be very proud of it!!!

That is beautiful! I’ve been wanting to make one, but I can’t seem to find the pattern they used for the duplicate stitch. Where did you find yours?

That looks great!

wow that shrunk a lot in length.

I found the chart here: http://books.google.com/books?id=2aZIM5FDkXEC&pg=PA33&lpg=PA33&dq=rock+star+bag+chart+knitty+gritty&source=web&ots=4CNMTRL3CY&sig=WV0Mh-ABhEfT6h_x-PS5twMXNK0
