Color Inspiration: Striped Bag

I received this gift bag recently and loved the color scheme. It would translate nicely into any knitting or crochet project with stripes, such as a sweater, hat, or baby blanket. Primarily chocolate brown, the bag also has stripes in dark pink, lime green, baby blue, and light pink. It was tied with a light pink ribbon.

This would be fabulous as a knitted (or crocheted) and felted tote bag. I extrapolated the color pattern into rows (rounds). To knit or crochet this pattern would take 78 rounds using 5 colors as follows:

8 rounds Chocolate (color A)
7 rounds Hot Pink (color B)
2 rounds Lime Green (color C)
4 rounds Chocolate (color A)
1 round Light Blue (color D)
2 rounds Chocolate (color A)
7 rounds Light Pink (color E)
1 rounds Chocolate (color A)
3 rounds Light Blue (color D)

3 rounds Light Pink (color E)
