Lion Brand Project – Graphic Elements Tote

I just love this tote!  It is a free pattern from Lion Brand.com and I carry the yarn in-store – Lion Brand Wool-ease.  The tote is knitted with 3 balls of Zinnia (a fuschia pink) and one ball of Oxford Grey.  There was some Zinnia leftover at the end. However, there is an errata in the pattern – to get the effect in the photograph, you need to use Oxford Grey as the main colour (background colour) when knitting the motif section and Zinnia for the contrast colour.  The Lion Brand pattern actually states that Zinnia is the main colour and Oxford Grey is the contrast – hence my photo looks quite different from Lion Brand’s:

Despite this error, it still looks nice and the bag is on display in the shop along with copies of the free pattern.
