Sunburst Circle Bag


Airy eyelets, textured puffs, and pleasing clusters are on full display in this mandala circle bag.

Use raffia yarn for a straw beach bag that will hold all your warm weather accessories. The open weave of this pattern allows sand and other small particles to fall away, while allowing damp towels to air dry.

Work up this pattern in thicker Bulky weight yarn for a gorgeous fall or winter tote to reign in those cozy scarves, hats, and mittens while running errands. Whatever yarn you use, you’ll have a statement piece to add to your bag collection.
