As some of you might know, I have two ukuleles. A tenor, and a concert. I have a soft sided gig bag that came with the tenor, but my concert has no such bag to protect her while travelling. I decided to knit and felt the Hana Hou! gig bag pattern and make my own.
Unfortunately it didn’t go exactly to plan, and the bag fits my tenor better than my concert, but its super thick and padded and will probably protect either of them better than my other bag does.
After 4 cycles in a hot water/heavy agitation wash, it wad down to this size and not getting any smaller.
And finally, hanging out with my concert uke inside. Its a little big for it, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I would definitely consider making this again, though I would have more fun with the colorwork.
