Inspired by Pam Allen's Highmoor Bag from our Sparrow Sans collection in 2014, Fox Island is worked with one strand of Kestrel, and the multicolored stripes give us an opportunity to play with color! Two garter stitch panels are worked flat, then stitches are picked up on three sides of each square for the base, with more cast on for a strap. These two pieces are then joined with a three-needle bind off to complete the bag.
