If you cannot knit, you could add a backing for strength and transform an old sweater into a tote bag. Attach ready-made leather handles. Love the bag but I would rather knit the entre thing rather than use an aod sweaters
*free pattern- 'Cabled Tote Bag' features a Vertical Swirl Cable on right & left sides *think greek columns, etc!* and a Highly Textural Honey Comb Cable base fabric. the end result is an awesome, professional-looking bag!
