Simple knitted bag pattern

This is the pattern I made up for the bag to take to my SIL's wedding.


Using aran weight yarn and 4mm needles (smaller needles make a tight fabric so no need to line). This pattern will fit a 15cm bag handle, so just add stitches to fit larger (if you add to the ends the pattern is unaffected).
CO36 stitches leaving a long tail to sew up later.

To make up sew wider part together with right sides together, then sew reverse stocking stitch sections around handles (they should naturally curl around!) and voila you are ready to go!

  1. This is absolutely lovely. I'vve added it to Pinterest so I can come back to it when I'm ready, but I think it would also make a super lovely scarf. Thanks for sharing your pattern.
