Tote for a Cause
This tote was inspired by the valiant battle against breast cancer that Emily, the daughter-in-law of my long-time test knitter and good friend, Sue Hauser, is currently struggling with (see link below for more details).
The tote is worked nearly seamlessly (the ribbon has to be tacked down at the end) using a combination of mitred squares, picking up stitches and some kitchener stitch. The handle on one side is designed to be the ribbon of a cause you support. This pattern can be worked using any yarn/gauge, although I do suggest finding something sturdy and/or machine washable.
In lieu of charging for this pattern, please consider donating to a cause you're passionate about.
