Folk Bags: 30 Knitting Patterns From Around The World

Folk Bags: 30 Knitting Patterns From Around The World

by Vicki Square

Bags are essential for living-whether walking to a neighbor’s house or going to the store. And Vicki Square’s contemporary interpretations of these 30 folk designs are truly extraordinary. Each one is inspired by traditional folk bags or folk art from 23 different countries including Nepal, Tibet, Japan, Ireland, Ecuador, and Guatemala. You’ll find bags in all shapes, colors, textures, and sizes for work, play, or for a special evening on the town. Included are the Guatemalan Saddlebag, the Persian carpet–inspired handbag, the fish-shaped Chinese felted bag, the Bolivian Doll bag, and the Moroccan Tile bag. A brief cultural history and how it inspired Vicki’s design preface each pattern, all of which are accompanied by step-by-step instructions and clear illustrations. Knitters of every skill level are sure to be intrigued by the versatile and imaginative designs in this unique collection. This is the sixth book in Interweave Press’s Folk series.
