YARN A: chunky weight yarn, OR a mix of yarns that provides as much as chunky weight (see Notes on selecting yarn). Approx 85-90m per yarn for predominant bag. Pattern used 1 strand of Bluefaced Undyed Yarns Chunky Mohair loop (88% child mohair, 8.4% wool, 3.6% nylon, 100m per 100g skein) held along with 1 strand of Fyberspates Cumulus (74% child suri alpaca, 26% silk, 150m per 25g ball) in shade Pure.

YARN B: aran weight cotton. Approx 85m. Pattern proven used Rico Artistic Cotton Aran (100% cotton, 85m per 50g) in shade Black.

GAUGE: 15 sts and 20 rows to 4 inches / 10 cm in stocking sew. Urged measurement 4mm.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS: 4mm needles of any size // Zipper (approx 10” / 25 cm // Cable ties (aka zip ties) for construction. Pattern used 12 cable ties of width 4.8mm and size 380mm. Additionally, you will want matching stitching thread, a tapestry needle (for weaving in ends) and a stitching needle (for assembling bag).

SIZING: completed bag measures approx 10.5” / 27 cm vast and 5.5” / 14cm deep.

CHOOSING YARN: For the white pattern, I used 1 strand of chunky boucle held with 1 strand of alpaca (linked under). On a 4mm needle, this knit as much as a dense but versatile material.

For the pink pattern, I used 1 strand of DK weight cotton, 1 strand of DK weight mohair, 1 strand of laceweight mohair, and 1 strand of alpaca all held collectively. On a 4mm needle, this knit as much as an especially dense material (actually like carpet), that made for a sluggish knitting course of however a really sturdy bag. I used 2 strands of DK cotton held collectively for the strap.

There’s a lot of flexibility with yarn decisions for this design, relying how agency you’d like the material. It could possibly be knit with oddments of random yarns held collectively, utilizing an everyday boucle, or all types of enjoyable yarns. I’d undoubtedly suggest utilizing a fluffy / textured / crazy yarn of some description as these yarns ‘compress’ while on the needles then ‘increase’ to fill the gaps.

CHOOSING NEEDLES: 4mm needles are advised for this sample, which can appear extraordinarily small for chunky weight yarn however is critical to create the dense material. Gauge isn’t too vital as long as your bag isn’t too huge to your zipper, however it is very important have a agency material.

CONSTRUCTION: The Boulevard bag is labored in 3 items: 2 similar bag halves, and 1 strap. Quick rows and reduces are used to create the 3D form of the bag, and the 2 halves are joined with a 3 needle bind off alongside the centre of the gusset.

Tucks are used to create channels via which reinforcements are inserted. Samples used plastic cable ties for this function, however different robust but versatile gadgets (comparable to corset boning) may additionally work.

The strap is labored in double knitting, which creates a robust & reversible material. As soon as all 3 parts are knitted and the ends woven in, the zipper is handstitched in utilizing matching stitching thread. The strap is then sandwiched between the gusset and the highest of the bag and handstitched into place. The sample features a video tutorial for assembling the bag.
