Throw it on your arm while eating custard and window shopping in Door County, Wisconsin. Toss in a trashy novel on your way to the beach! Dress it up for a hot date at the Friday night fish boil. You will want to use this bag every day this summer to matter where you are.
The Door County Wooden Handle Bag is the perfect summer bag. It’s versatile, deceivingly large without being bulky, and it can be dressed up or down. What more could you want? Garder stitch ribs give the body of The Door County Wooden Handle Bag a lot of stretch while holding it’s bell shape. The top cables add interest and flare.
Knit in any color and using a variety of different handle shapes, this one pattern will go a long way! Mix it up for a different bag every week.
