"Take in a lakefront stroll with the Edgewater bag. This roomy, felted purse is equally at home on the beach, at the office, or just about anywhere else. The simple stitches and felted texture are a great way to highlight your favorite color-changing yarn. Felting also makes a strong, dense fabric, so that no lining is necessary. Edgewater is approximately 11 inches x 13 inches before felting, and 9.5 inches x 11 inches after felting. Finished measurements may vary depending on fiber used and how aggressively you felt it."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a nice pattern for a satchel although you do need to felt the project in order to get it to have the requisite stiffness. Not all yarn is feltable, so you will need to be very careful in your selection. I would almost be tempted to work this in Caron One Pound as it tends to make a stiffer fabric even without felting. I use this brand almost exclusively when working up a larger bag.
