Finished Project - The Beaded Question Bag

I really love the Burien Yarn Stash's Question Bag, by Bonnie Moore (Rav link), so much I had to make another one, but this time I added beads to the pattern design along the edges. I'm very happy with the results:

Made with Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton in Color #3704 (I call it eggplant).
Dimensions: 6.5" w x 7.5" h

In the pattern there is a yarn over in the center of each of the circles that are created and that is where I placed the beads, so instead of a little hole, there is a bead instead. This one could be used as a an evening bag - the beads give it a little elegance or it could be used as a gift bag - the receiver would get two gifts in one!


  1. What a lovely bag! I love the addition of the beads! Clever.
