Knit and felt these bags in 2 styles, each style in 2 sizes. These Laptop Bags call out "color"! The bold yellow of the Yellow Covered with Dots and its brilliant mix of circles is for the Intermediate to Advanced knitter who has a mastery of intarsia and loves to work multiple colors at once. Black Covered with Dots offers a different visual statement where dots pop out against a dark field. For the Beginner who wants to try intarsia, the simpler A Few Dots Laptop Bag is the obvious choice.
