A softly structured bag, Hobo Tote is both stylish and practical. It is knit from the base up in the round, with the straps a continuation of the bag. It features deep side pockets for a phone, knitting needles, crochet hooks or eyeglasses. Complete instructions are provided for knitting, felting and shaping the bag.

"I have found that many of my customers are accomplished knitters but are unsure of their felting skills. There are many little tips that can help with felting that are too varied or random to include in every pattern. [The monthly] newsletter will answer direct questions and offer some tips that will help you achieve the outcome you want.   Thanks!" --Cindy
