Lovely Knitted Bag Patterns (Including A Vintage Design)
Posted By Tipnut On September 9, 2009 @ 6:03 am In Knitting | No Comments
Here’s an assortment of lovely bags you can knit, they’re ideal for running errands and shopping. As always, all patterns are free. The vintage project that was originally published on this page is still here but you’ll find it moved below the collection. I’ll be adding more projects to this page as I find them, enjoy!
Summer : Ideal for carrying groceries, toting to the beach or even hauling laundry, has a drawstring closure (I-cord).
Cable Band : Finished size measures approximately 11″ wide by 7.5″ tall (not including handles). Some experience with grafting (kitchener stitch) is recommended.
Exploring Waves : Here’s a one-skein beaded project worked on circulars and DPNs. Glass beads are strung onto a ball of wool first.
Tote : Made with yarns in two colors and worked on circulars & DPNs, started from the top down.
Stripes : (felted) Generous size and worked on straights & DPNs using a double strand of yarn.
Tasha : Features a long strap (in cable) so you can wear it slung across the chest, finished size measures 9″ wide x 10″ long.
Square Cake : Body features vertical diamond stitch panels and the handles act as closure. Worked on DPNs.
Zakka Pouch : The body is fabric (drawstring closure at top) but the bottom base is knit.
This can be made any desired size.
Abbreviations: K (knit); p (purl); tog (together); O (yarn over); to make an eyelet–(k 2 tog, O twice, k 2 tog); sts (stitches)
Alternate these two groups to height desired.
Two different ways of closing it are shown. For the style shown in the illustration:
The top shown in lower portion of illustration is made exactly the same only with a row of eyelets completely across top–this is (k 1, eyelet) repeated, ending with an eyelet. This completes one side. Make a second piece.
Sew sides together and across bottom. Leave about one inch open on each side.
Take a large size sewing spool and drive four nails equally spaced around top; let each nail protrude about one half inch above the spool. Number each nail 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Make two cords each about 16 inches long for the top. Make a knot on each end.
