Show off your skills this Springtime with a knitted Doggy Bag

Posted 9th March 2015

Knitted Spaniel Fascia in Doggy Bag Knitted Shih Tzu Fascia in Doggy Bag Knitted Labrador Fascia

As the days grow longer and lighter, we're celebrating the arrival of Springtime with the launch of our brand-new Interchangeable Doggy Bag Knitting Pattern, now available to buy as a Kindle Edition from the Amazon UK website.

A cute and compact handbag that's sure to get you noticed when you're out and about (and has absolutely nothing to do with leftover dinner), this knitted Doggy Bag has a recessed end panel into which you can fit any one of three adorable doggy fascias based on three favourite breeds - Labrador, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Shih Tzu.

What's more, because the doggy fascia takes up a relatively small proportion of the bag's capacity, you get the best of both worlds from your bag - the illusion of a fully occupied pet carrier, but with plenty of space inside for those essentials such as your keys, mobile phone and purse.

Best suited to experienced knitters, this pattern includes all the detail you'll need to make your own Doggy (hand)Bag and all three pups. The bag and all three puppies are knitted using acrylic yarn, the colours of which can easily be varied perhaps even to create a woolly version of a real-life pet. The main body of the bag is structured using plastic canvas and measures approximately 20.5cm in length, 11.5cm in width and up to 17cm in height.

If you'd like to have a go at making your own Interchangeable Doggy Bag, there's more to see on our Patterns to Buy page from where you can click on through to the pattern's dedicated page on the Amazon UK website.

Happy knitting!
