The Two Old Bags pattern line started with a goal to provide knitting patterns with complete instructions from start to finish. Each pattern is written with the advanced beginner in mind and the hope that the knitter might learn something new.
Despite the name, the Two Old Bags catalog includes more than just felted purses or knitted bags. Lace shawl patterns like "Summer in Kansas" were some of the original designs Katie and Ann created. Along with lace and bag patterns there are patterns that don't fit in either category. Check out the baby blanket trio (Kaia's Blankets) or several purse patterns that are knit only (no felting required). There are shrugs, a ruanna, and a trio of baby blankets. Mister Ben is a knitted sock monkey who can be knit in a wide range of sizes to be a toy for all ages. Most recently, traditional two-color Christmas stockings have been re-released as Up North Christmas Stockings.
The patterns come in booklet format. Look for them at your local yarn shop, or place your order here.
