I made this using leftover Lion brand homespun yarn in a blue and green color, and I also didn't make the neck part 5" as directed because I thought that it would be too high. I don't think he likes it too much though, lol.
I recently made this tote and felted today, I really like how felting completely alters the look of a knit piece! I used Paton's Classic Merino yarn instead of the Brown Sheep, which I can't find anywhere really. I think the handles looks a little wierd, like they didn't felt enough. I may run it one more time.
