Pre-Felted Araucania Magallanes Bag

I finished knitting up this bag last night. It is pre-felted, so hence not finished...perhaps tonight I'll run the washer. This was made with Araucania Magallanes...just a bit over one skein was used. I also used some eyelash yarn to add a bit of pizazz. The top will ruffle, as I cast on 120 stitches, and then decreased to 80 stitches. At the bottom I switched to a smaller circular needle, and then started to decrease again, at the four corners. I'm hoping after it felts it will taper a bit toward the bottom. I ended with about 40 stitches, 20 stitches each side, plus 2 stitches on the sides and did a 3 needle bind-off. The bottom should felt flat.

    This is SO pretty! Can't wait to see it felted! Can you please tell me where you found the pattern? Or did you design this yourself? I only recently did my first felted bag and I am so hooked! :)

    What size is it pre-felting? And what size when it's finished?

    It's gorgeous! Wish we had AC Moore stores in Northern California.

    Have you felted it yet? I'm dying to see it (or is that dyeing? lol)
