Fabulous Felted Purse Patterns - Day 3 ~ Felted Skull Tote

Shiver me timbers! This tote would make a great bag for carrying knitting projects or just a fun bag to show the "dangerous" side of your personality. Pattern and photos are from Adrian Bizilia, who says "Print it, share it, link to it and enjoy it. Just don't take credit for it or sell it. Thank you."

Felted Skull Tote


- MC-10 oz./ approx 500 yards worsted weight 100% wool yarn in your main color (black shown)

- CC- 2 oz./ approx. 100 yards worsted weight 100% wool yarn in contrast color (white shown)

I used vintage Coats and Clark's Red Heart 100% Virgin Wool 4 ply Knitting Worsted, but as long as you use worsted weight 100% wool you should have very similar results.

- One size 13 US circular, 32" long. I never had to switch to DPNs while decreasing for the bottom. I just pulled the excess needle cable out between two stitches at the back of the work. If you like, DPNs may be used for the latter decreases at the bottom and the i-cord.

- 4 stitch markers or scraps of contrasting yarn for this purpose

- tapestry needle to weave in ends

This pattern produces a tote approx. 17.5" x 14" before fulling and 13" tall by 10.5" wide, with 23" straps that fit nicely over the shoulder after fulling.
