#139 Little Bags for Little Projects & Little People

Knitting
Worsted / 10 ply (9 wpi) ?
12 stitches and 16 rows = 4 inches in The gauge above refers to pre-felted, using a double-strand of worsted weight yarn. The felted gauge (or for an unfelted bag) should be 16 stitches & 24 rows in 4 inches.
US 9 - 5.5 mm
US 11 - 8.0 mm
85 - 260 yards (78 - 238 m)

These little bags are just perfect for sunny spring days. Every time I look at these bags, they make my spirit feel younger. With room for all of the necessities, take them everywhere your flip-flops will carry you. As a Spring Basket, make felted and decorate with stripes, dots, or small field flowers.

Great starter project for the budding knitter in your household! Made unfelted for warmer months; the small size of these bags (and thus, the small amount of yarn) makes them perfect for trying out new, exquisite fibers.

The pattern is designed for the intrepid beginner, so it requires knowledge of knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches, and working in the round on circular needles.
