Combine the gradual striping sequence of a unique yarn like Kauni Effektgarn with the geometric construction of a messenger bag and you will have Ilga Leja's one-of-a-kind carry-all the Kauni Messenger Bag.

Knit in three separate pieces that are then pieced together and felted in the washing machine, this satchel is the perfect size for your everyday needs. Large enough to carry a laptop computer or your library books, without being oversized.

Kauni Effekt 8/2 is held tripled using the Navajo Triple-Ply Technique. This technique is fully described (with detailed photos) in the pattern instructions.  Shown in Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 yarn, 100% wool (400 m./437 yds. per 100 g.), colour W-EH, “Earth and Sky”.
