Yarn – Patons Classic Wool Roving in 77404 Orchid
Blogger – knittinjen
The Felted Cable Bag is knit flat and sewn before felting but I decided to convert it to knit in the round. Since it will be felted I am not concerned on whether it will fit or not so I did not adjust the number of stitches.
In the early stages of knitting something I decide whether I’ll knit "exactly" as the pattern is written or adjust things to suit me. I more often than not do some adjusting. With this pattern, for example, I selected using Patons Classic Wool Roving rather than Patons SWS and I am torn on whether I like the idea of tying the straps. Don't get me wrong, I like that I could adjust the length depending on what I’m carrying. But, I won’t concern myself with that too much right now since I’m just getting started.
Having 200 stitches sounds overwhelming but with this bulky weight yarn I don’t mind. Getting one round done doesn’t take too long so I expect (remember I’m not a fan of the math) to finish this pretty quickly.
By the way, I’m loving me some Patons Classic Wool Roving yarn! A perfect alternative to my all-time fav: Patons Classic Wool.
