The Technicolor Shopper is worked from the bottom up in a slipped stitch pattern. The bag is worked in three strands of yarn held together throughout, and the gradual transitions between colors are achieved by continuously changing between the different colors of yarn held together. The color changes are thoroughly described in the pattern. Work the bag in your favorite colors and either follow the method of changing colors described meticulously in the pattern or use it as a guide and as inspiration and create your own interpretation of the Technicolor Shopper.
