I finished this knitted Miragamo bag. I found the pattern for the Miragamo Bag by Georgie Kajer on Ravelry. I went to my local specialty yarn store to find the hemp yarn as suggested, but they didn’t carry it. I ended up buying and using Louet Euroflax Chunky Wt. in brown.
The bag measures 14.5 in wide, 12.5 in high, and 4 in deep. The handles are Grayson E leather handles.
The bag is fully lined with pockets (6 in wide X 5.25 deep).
The pattern directions called for using plastic canvas to make supporting structure for the bag. I used Pellon Peltex 70 instead. I covered each Peltex piece with brown fabric so the white wouldn’t be an issue showing through the linen knit pattern. Here you can see the band strip.
Here is a photo of the fabric-covered Peltex sewn together to form a “box” which then was sewn into the bag. This “box” lays between the knitted linen and the lining. It is indeed the skeleton of the bag.
