Looking at the pattern I would think you would need both straights and dpns. The bag looks like it is worked flat and then stitched. The handles are i-cords so you would need your dpn’s to do the i-cord. I am betting the straights were forgotten when the pattern was published. Just my guess.
You are right! I just looked again and it mentions the DPN’s for the I-cord, but no mention of the needles for the bag that I can see. I’ll use my straights.

The sturdiest yarn Ive ever FELT felted (hee hee!) was Lamb’s Pride…Hildie made a wine bottle cozy & its about 3/4" thick!!
LOL Wow…that would be perfect for a wine cozy, but do you really need a bag that sturdy??? I guess if you were carrying rocks around, but yarn isn’t so heavy.

It’s got all kinds of matching felted knitting things! I bought it for the bag, too.

Wouldn’t hemp be the strongest in the land?
I echo what Brenda said…can you felt hemp?
In any case, I’m not carrying rocks as I said before. I was thinking of making my own yarn bag or whatever if it’s smaller so it doesn’t need to be super heavy, but I don’t want the sides to cave in. I’ll check out the Lamb’s Pride, but would WOTA work for a bag? Good price on that stuff!
Oh and if I double the yarn instead of single would it make it sturdier regardless of what I use (woolwise)?
