Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl.
  • Knitting in the round.

Pattern Description:

The Inca Eco Drawstring Bag pattern is an easy knit project that's perfect for any season.

This drawstring bag is made in the round on a long circular needle using the magic loop technique, but you can substitute your own favorite method of knitting in the round.

Cheri's design uses slipped stitches to create a window pane effect. The bag is large enough to fit a jumbo skein of yarn. It would also make a lovely, eco-friendly gift bag!

Cheri chose two contrasting colors (Ecru and Wine) for this version, but you could also use two shades of the same color for a different effect.

Designer: Cheri McEwen
