Pattern Description:

This is a very easy knitting pattern. A perfect first project for those new to knitting and a lovely simple, quick, project for the more experienced knitter.
Cast on, rib, knit, increase, decrease, cast off.
Optional fabric lining, with instructions. I didn't line the interior of the original because the Chunky Yarn makes a lovely, firm exterior. It's a perfect bag for holding my yarn as I knit.

Knit flat, in one piece from top rib to top rib.
