Totasaurus Rex

Rawr! We've got a new pattern for you today - Totasaurus Rex!

Totasaurus Rex is the perfect felted tote for newer knitters. It’s what we teach in the Beginners Felted Tote class at Knitters Mercantile! In that class we teach how to knit in the round, pick up stitches and I-cord bind off.

The pattern calls for 4 balls total of Kraemer Mauch Chunky. Two balls are needed of a main color, and one ball each of two different contrasting colors are needed.

You will also need US #11 32” circular needle, stitch markers, matching sewing thread, and a sewing needle. Optional notions include 4 bag feet, plastic canvas for the bottom of the bag, and fabric to cover it.

The gauge listed on the pattern (12 sts to 4”) is the gauge in stockinette stitch before felting. The bag will obviously shrink because that's what happens with felting. :)

So head on over to Ravelry and get your copy of the Totasaurus Rex pattern!
