  • Basic knitting skills.

Pattern Description:

This bag looks well with a contrasting ruffle or same color ruffle. I used a purchased handle from a local craft store. The flap is buttoned to the body of the bag to keep it closed, but you could use a magnetic snap closure if you prefer. I like pockets, so there is a pocket in the center outside back of this bag. If you prefer a sturdier bottom to your bag, cut a piece of plastic canvas the size of the base of the bag and tack it in place between the inside of the bag and the lining.


20 sts / 26 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch

20 sts / 23 rows = 4" in seed stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished bag measures 9 1/2" wide x 7" tall x 3" deep.


  • About 210 yds worsted weight yarn for main color, 47 yds for contrasting color (cotton blend yarn works well) Needles: US #7 (4.50mm) straight & also double pointed or 24" circular.

You Will Also Need:

  • Stitch markers, tapestry needle, 2 stitch holders or waste yarn, purchased bag handle, 1 yd lining fabric, 1 yd interfacing, 1 button to fit buttonhole.
