Lion Brand Yarn Co Free Patterns

I so appreciate the many free patterns Lion Brand Yarn Co has on their website.  I took the pattern for the “All-About-Town Tote and modified it for my first try.  It was okay, but it really didn’t end up the way I wanted (due to my modifications to the pattern).  The second try I did it almost exactly like the pattern and you can see for yourself the end result.

I did change one aspect of it, I used a size 2 wool in black for the second color throughout.  The main colors were Caron soft worsted.  The wool gives it a lot of stability and the soft worsted a softer finish.  I also tapered the top of the bag for 8 rows to better match the bottom shaping.
