A pattern for hand-knitting a cute little drawstring bag with handy outside pockets.
The bag measures 35cm high by 26cm wide if using Twilleys Freedom Echo DK, however you can substitute other DK cotton yarns or other weight yarns always remembering the finished bag will be a different size.
There are two outside pockets, knitted in one piece and divided in two by duplicate stitching (photo instructions included).
The bag is knitted in the round with provisional cast on at the bottom and drawstring tunnels at the top which can either be seamed closed or finished with a 3 needle bind-off.
Instructions included on making an I-cord.
Yarn: 2 skeins of the main colour and 1 skein of the contrast colour or 3 skeins altogether if only using 1 colour.
Notions: 5mm (US ) circular needle (16” length) and same size straights (or just the circular needle and a stitch holder) plus extra needle the same size for 3 needle bind-off.
5mm (US 8) dpns or circular needle for I-cord.
Tapestry needle for pulling I-cord through drawstring tunnel and weaving in ends.
Stitch markers (3).
