Bag knitted in the round with a decorative picot eding cast-off.
Cast on at the base of the bag is sewn up afterwards.
An ideal project for a beginner and great for experimenting with colour, and for using yarns left from other projects. Any jumperweight yarn is suitable for this project.
The finished size doesn’t matter so matching gauge is not important.
Needs 1 ball of main colour and 6 other colours. Knitting this with just 2 colours is great for improving technique.
