What better way to show off all of your buffalo yarn than making your own buffalo project bag. BWC has teamed up with Erin Lane Bags to help bring you this BWC exclusive project bag. We worked with Erin Lane Bags to design a double lined insert project bag made of pre-washed heavy muslin cloth, giving you a fully lined bag to ensure that your knitting needles and knitting projects stay safely inside: undamaged and untangled.
This project is a great introduction to fair isle knitting, easy design knitted in the round. Project is knitted from the bottom up, with the pattern instructions written and charted. When the knitted part of the project is completed all you have to do is insert the Erin Lane bag using a blanket stitch to attach the two bags.
Guauge: 26 sts x 32 rows = 4" (10cm) in stockinette
Needed notion (not included) US size 4 (3.5mm) 16” circular needles, stitch marker and yarn needle

Care: The yarn and drawstring bag is 100% machine washable, lay flat to dry

I love the pattern but am going to modify this to make it into a scarf. I just can’t “waste” this lovely yarn and not have next to my skin! So with an added skein of the orange and the remainders of the other colors it will now be a buffalo scarf. I will then use the project bag insert but a different cover with scratchy yarn I can’t wear.
Remember you can make mods to kits and knitting. There are no Knitting police!
A great deal for the kit
The pattern was easy to follow and the bag is gorgeous.
I have almost completed my Buffalo Bag. I love the colors! The muslin liner bag is very well made and larger than I expected. I may sew a pocket or two onto it before sewing the bag together. My kit was missing one color of yarn when it arrived but Theresa and Ron were quick to send the missing yarn along. Great customer service and a great product!
I cannot wait to start working on my bag! The colors of the yarn are amazing and I'm so happy to have the Erin Lane liner - it will really give the bag extra polish. The pattern is very clear and I look forward to my first rodeo with fair isle!
I saw this bag at Maryland Sheep & Wool and I'm hoping to have it completed by the time Betsy heads back East for the DC Holiday Market!
