We’re kicking off the beginning of 12 Weeks of Gifting with a stunning colorwork project, The Sipalu Bag. Inspired by the brightly colored textiles from the Himalayas, this Fair Isle tote brings together eleven harmonious color to create an eye-catching design.


Isn’t it lovely? The bag is knit in our classic colorwork wool yarn, Palette and the pattern includes charts for two different color combinations. This allows you to create two bags with just one set of colors required for the pattern! Along with interesting construction techniques and a fun Fair Isle pattern on the front, sides and top, this tote is sure to be a rewarding challenge for any knitter.

Download the free Sipalu Bag pattern HERE and remember to check back next Wednesday to see what pattern will be revealed as a free download!
