Start of Felted Monk Bottle Bag

Here is the front view of the felted "Monk" bottle bag
Here is the side view
It didn't come out exactly as I had planned ... but maybe it will do for now. I still need to make an i-cord with the three knots in it (for vows of poverty, chastity and obedience). I will make holes in it under the "hood" area and thread the cord through there. (I think I'll do that. I have to make it and see if it looks right.) I guess I'll use the white Lopi Lite I have in my stash, as I know it felts reliably. This bag I made exactly like the snowman, only omitted the decreases and knit it straight up. I then increased and worked several rows of seed stitch in-between stocking stitch. Kent thinks it looks like the grim reaper!
