Puffy Drawstring Bag

Lion Brand« Sasha

GAUGE:

12 sts = 4 in. [10 cm] in Garter st (k every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

FRONT AND BACK (make 2)

Cast on 36 sts. Work in Garter st (k every row) until piece measures 13 in. [33 cm] from beg.

Next Row (Eyelet Row): K1, *k2tog, yo, k4; repeat from * to last 5 sts, k2tog, yo, k3. Work in Garter st for 1 in. [2.5 cm] more. Bind off loosely.

FINISHING
With eyelet row along top edge, seam Front and Back together along sides and lower edge. Fold each lower corner 2 in. [5 cm] to inside of Bag and sew in place. Weave drawstring through eyelet holes. Sew on handles. Weave in ends.

Puffy Drawstring Bag Reviewed by Paula Allen on 2009-06-25 *****
I am about halfway through the first of two pieces -- I love this yarn! The fabric looks like fleece, very dense at this gauge, but soft. A couple of tips: If you're a Continental knitter, be prepared to learn to pick and throw. As a tape yarn, Sasha doesn't come off the needles that easily. Still, it works up fast. I plan to buy a skein of Lion Suede in Coffee or Ebony to make the braid for the drawstring; might line it with a cognac-colored Ultrasuede-type fabric to play up the fleece aspect. This is a super-easy pattern, but the bag will be really nice!
