kitty: Mia's Holiday Market Bag

item: Mia's Market Bag
pattern: My own design, based on an interpretation of a pattern that I saw in Nordic Knitting 2
content: 3 hanks of 2nd Chance Yarn
time: 4 hours

If you need a last minute gift and have a couple of hours today, this bag is totally doable in about 4 hours. The bag is so easy, here are just some basic instructions to get you on the right track.

1) Knit 4 rectangles that are 6 inches wide by 20 inches long. (I knitted one of the rectangles with several rows of purls and bobbles to create random stripes.)

2) The base of the bag is constructed as the diagram below.

3) Then sew the following sides together, making sure to sew from the base of the bag to the top since the edges will not be the same length. Side 2 to 3, 4 to 5, 6 to 7, 8 to 1

4) Knit two i-cord straps around 10 inches long and attach them to the points opposite each other.

  1. Nice one, I agree that crochet can give that instant gratification that crafters need! Love the colours x
