PDF PATTERN for Knitting the "Carry a Tune" Music Bag

Item #p9226

This product is a PDF download of the pattern for knitting a music bag. We do not sell the actual finished music bag.

Caroline Steinford designed the pattern to knit the fun and useful "Carry A Tune" bag. The bag is covered in a stylized brocade created from musical symbols, with mirrored Celtic harps gracing the front flap. The silhouette is based on a Triplett lever harp. The fabric is reversible, so either side may be chosen as the public side of the bag with the inside in the opposite colors.

Double-knitting with worsted weight yarn creates an extra-thick fabric, making the bag an ideal protective carrying case spacious enough for books, papers, music, or even a notebook computer. The swatch even doubles as an interior pocket!

The bag is begun in the round and continued flat, then the pieces are attached by single-crochet in a contrasting color. Yarn shown is Cascade 220 in Color 8010 (cream) - 4 skeins; Color 8555 (black) - 4 skeins; Color 8908 (light blue) - 1 skein. If yarn is substituted, be sure to choose a sturdy worsted-weight yarn. You will need approx. 880 yd / 805 m each of two main colors and 100 yd / 92 m of an accent color.
