The 'Paca Bag from Knitscene Summer 2018 is perfect for holding supplies for the beach or a backyard party. The ‘Paca Bag is a seamless knit that can hold a lot. Felting the bag makes it extra sturdy and gives it velvety texture. Beautiful details like the braided handle band, cute little alpacas & floral patterns will keep your brain entertained during the making too. This bag is worked in the round from the bottom up. Please note that superwash yarns will not felt into the dense fabric shown in the images.
