Granny Square Inspired Knitted Tote Bag

I adore crochet granny squares, they are addictive to make, the colour combinations are endless and you can make so many things from them.  But why should those hookers have all the fun?

Inspired by gorgeous granny square beach bags, I have designed this knit version 🙂  Each of the three squares is worked in the round from the centre out.  It is knitted using Jamieson’s of Sheland DK wool and is felted using the washing machine.  If you can not bring yourself to shrink your knitting this bag will look equally pretty un-felted.
