Knit this gorgeous bag in only a few hours. The chunky texture of the twill tape adds stunning visual interest, while the shape is functional and fun at the same time. Add a lovely, removable leather handle, along with a one-of-a-kind antique toggle button to keep your bag closed. The Tessa Tote is worked in the Linen Stitch across a simple rectangle. Detailed video on how to knit the linen stitch and complete the bag is included. Accomplish the shape through folding as a bento bag at the end of the project.  With the Linen Stitch, you can choose the right side of the fabric (olive) or the wrong side (mushroom), and they both look fabulous!

Tessa Tote

Tessa tote is a great project. Video support, customer service, packaging ….stellar! An easy project for someone who knows how to knit and purl. I highly recommend and I work in a LYS (local yarn store)!!🧶

Well, the pattern is beautiful but no way can you make this bag in 4 hours. The pattern is well written and the video is excellent. Still need to finish the leather strap and add the toggle button. Well worth the $$ for the pattern and video!
