I recommend this product

DUbious

I bought this because I liked the color and texture. However, I have not found a use for it; I usually knit or crochet. My next effort will be to integrate it into a coil basket. I asked for suggestions for its use but the response was not helpful. My recommendation is that you know what you are doing or understand that it is an experiment. I also encourage Paradise FIbers to feature some completed projects that use this fiber as a way to inspire other fiber artists. My recommendation is ambivalent.

Product Details

Let's Go Shopping Market Bag Kit featuring our Recycled Sari Silk Yarn. Kit includes "Let's Go Shopping Market Bag" pattern by Linda Skinlo and 5 skeins of our Recycled Sari Silk Yarn.

You’ll need:
500 grams of our Recycled Sari Silk Yarn (5 skeins). Cotton, Hemp and Linen in a DK weight are also perfect for this.
3.5mm (US4) Double Point Needles
3.5mm (US4) Circular needles (aprox 40 cm/16" length)
6mm (US10) Circular needle (aprox 40 – 60 cm/ 16"-24" length)

Gauge is not horribly important. If you knit very loose I recommend using smaller needles for the bottom of the bag and the handles to avoid those parts stretching too much.

Here is how I knit the store sample pictured here:

  • I knit the whole bag on size 10 needles.
  • In Round 3 I decided to knit the yarn overs through the back loop because I didn't want holes in the bottom of the bag.
  • When I got to "The Bag Itself" section I did the first option to knit2together the normal way.
  • I knit until the bag was 30cm long, not 20cm like the pattern says because I wanted a longer bag.
  • Finally, for the handle, I made that longer than the pattern calls for too. I made my strap about 40cm long because I felt that 25-30cm wasn't long enough to comfortably wear over my shoulder.
Most of the changes were made based on personal preference. The size 10 needles worked well for me, but I did knit tightly where the pattern calls for a 3.5mm (US size 4) needle and regularly where it calls for a 6mm (US size 10) needle.
