Knitted in the round, this drawstring project bag uses small amounts of twelve colours of yarn and a slip stitch pattern to give you a finished bag that is both pretty and practical.

The ends of all those colours of yarn are knotted together and hidden under a fabric lining and the drawstrings have a magnetic clasp so that the bag can be fastened round the handle of a chair.

The pattern can also be adapted to make other sizes of bag. The one illustrated is about 37 cm tall and 22 cm wide but I also knitted a smaller one, half the size and the instructions for this are included in the pattern.
