These bags are begun with a garter stitch rectangle, knitted flat. Sts are picked up around 3 edges, then the body of the bag is knitted in the round. Options for I-cord or multiple I-cord edges are explained and instructions for working I-cord are included.

Needle, yarn suggestions and yarn amounts are given for one strand of worsted weight, 2 strands of worsted weight held together, or one strand of bulky weight.

Gauge, though not given, is intended to be quite loose - better for felting.

Pattern includes felting instructions, suggestions for I-cord handle installation, and optional I-cord edging (single or multiple).
