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.
– Set of 5: Size 1 DPN
– Sock or Fingering weight yarn

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 6: (kfb, k, kfb); rpt btn ( ) 8 times
Row 7 – 15: k all st

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- ???).
