This drawstring bag, which I imagine as a bag for small knitting projects, is worked one color at a time in a slip-stitch mosaic pattern. Stitches are picked up from a leather base for a knitted bag that you won’t be afraid to set on the floor, no matter where you may go. The stitch pattern (Endless Branch from Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury) is a series of never-ending vines that also evokes the balance of yin and yang imagery.
