Pattern Description:

We love this “really neat” ridge stitch pattern so much from our “moon hat” that we put it into a bag pattern! This is fun to knit, and not too boring! This is knit circular, with a unique “flower” type bottom closure. This will be a wonderful bag to take on your shopping trips, or a trip to the zoo with the children. Also good for a beach bag, for suntan oil, beach towel, sandals, and more! Knit up a couple of these bags, and give one to your friend for her birthday! Uses worsted weight yarns, 29 “circular needle, US # 10.5.


Gauge: 3 sts = 1 inch, and 7 rows = 1 inch measured over bag pattern stitch
