Every knitter loves bags! This is a roomy non-felted bag measuring about 14” high by 14” wide with a base of 4”. The bag has a square bottom reinforced by plastic canvas. It can be knit in any color scheme using a main color and four contrasting colors. I used white as the main color and four shades of orange. This is a great project for using up scrap yarns in various colors for the contrasting colors. This can be made in two strands of wool or acrylic. Knitting should be firm. Sample shown was made with two strands of Red Heart worsted for a sturdy bag that will stand up.
