Rose Flower Basket Bag

I based  this on the Poppy bag pattern, but began by constructing the bottom first. I used Woolly Chic DK Welsh wool for the bottom, then picked up the stitches around the outside and continued in the round with Drops Cotton Light DK.

Woolly Chic yarn formed the lining as far as the bottom. It was then finished in the same Drops Cotton Light colour as the outside.

To finish, I attached the magnetic closures through both layers of the bag. The metal front clasp was visible, so I covered with three knitted rosebuds.

The rear metal was covered with a leaf.

The pattern is very much finished and ready for test knitting.
