A Small Bag [Pattern]

05 Oct
When I started this pattern, I really had a purpose in mind – and I will continue with designing another pattern, most likely crochet, that will serve this purpose.

This pattern was a prototype boo-boo. Even though the little bag doesn’t serve the purpose that I was designing for, it is still an adorable little bag (or at least I think it is). 

What could you use it for? A gift bag for something like a ring, a couple candy kisses, or perhaps a little bag for a doll (a duffle type bag for a Barbie size doll or a little hand satchel for a larger doll). The bag itself is about an inch in diameter, perhaps an inch and a half tall.

A Small Bag
Pattern By: Cris

Items Needed:
– Set of 5: Size 1 DPN
– Sock or Fingering weight yarn
– Tapestry Needle

CO: cast on
st: stitch(es)
k: knit
k2tog: knit two stitches together
yo: yarn over
rpt: repeat
btn: between
kfb: knit front back

To Begin:
Using picot cast on method, CO 16 st

Split across 4 needles. Join the round being careful not to twist the picot edging.

Row 1 – 3: k all st
Row 4: (k2tog, yo, k 2); rpt btn ( ) 4 times
Row 5: (kfb, k 1); rpt btn ( ) 8 times
Row 6: (kfb, k, kfb); rpt btn ( ) 8 times
Row 7 – 15: k all st
Remaining Rows: k to last 2 st on each needle, k2tog until 3 st remain on each needle

Cast off by cutting the yarn (leaving several inches). Using a tapestry needle and the end tail, pick up all 9 st
on the needles to the tapestry needle. Pull tight and weave in the end securely.

Finish by weaving in the starting tail.

you can use a small clip of yarn to make a little drawstring by weaving it through the holes created in Row 4.

To make a longer bag – add more knit rows  to the body of the bag (row 7- ???).

    Oh no what a disaster, I would try catching every third of fourth stitch and seeing if that helps, could it be your catching too often, other than that I have no other solutions as to how you might rectify it. Hope you do find a way though.

    I couldn't agree more. I added several more rows to get the length I did end up with. My model is 5'6 so I cannot imagine how small their model is. I like to know what I am getting rather then get part way through and realize I will gave to modify the pattern.

    Thank you. I can try longer floats. Another suggestion on ravelry was to stagger them. I will do both.

    Great socks. Don't you just love trying to remember all the lies until Christmas? But if it works, than it works. LOL Sorry to hear about the epic fail. Looking forward to the pattern for the tiny bag. I have a grand Daughter that loves to play with Barbies.

    Not an epic lie… Sometimes we have to gently mislead our loved ones so that the actuality of the gift and the person who gets it, are truly surprised and appreciative of the gift!
