Textured Bag

Lion Brand® Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Roving Wool


10 sts + 11 rows = 3 1/2 in. (9 cm) in pattern. 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


Bag is worked in one piece, beg at top edge of front and ending at top edge of back. The Bag is then folded in half and seamed on the sides.


Ch 33.
Row 1: Sl st in 3rd ch from hook (beg ch counts as first hdc), *hdc in next ch, sl st in next ch; rep from * across - 16 hdc and 16 sl sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc in this row and in all following rows), turn, sk first sl st, sl st in next hdc, *hdc in next sl st, sl st in next hdc; rep from * across.
Rep last row until piece measures about 8 1/2 in. (21.5 cm) from beg.
Next 3 Rows:
Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across - 32 sts at the end of each of these rows.
Back Next Row: Ch 2, turn, sk first sc, sl st in next sc, *hdc in next sc, sl st in next sc; rep from * across.
Rep Row 2 until back measures same as front.
Fasten off.

Cut fabric to same size as Bag adding 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) seam allowance on all sides.
Fold lining in half and seam sides. Press 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) along open (top) edge of lining to WS.
Fold Bag in half and seam sides.
Top Edging
From RS, join yarn with sl st anywhere along top edge of Bag.
Round 1: Ch 1, work sc evenly spaced around top edge; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Place lining inside Bag, with WS of lining facing WS (inside) of Bag. With sewing needle and thread, sew lining to WS of Bag using sewn slip stitches.
With yarn, sew handles to Bag. Weave in ends.

Textured Bag Reviewed by Lori Cuervo on 2014-07-24 *****
I love this pattern. I used two strands of worsted weight yarn together, and it turned out fabulous. Very sturdy. I am going to add beads around the cream band in the middle. I will be making more of these in different color combinations.
