I imagine this floral motif as the window that looks out onto a rose garden, which would be a perfect place to sit and knit in the shades of the trellises, surrounded by the lovely scents of nature. This design features both double and single knit, making it a wonderful introduction to the Rotating Double Knit Loom by Authentic Knitting Board…Enjoy!

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate


This project is designed in such a way that a multitude of items can be created from it. If a bag is not preferred, a pillow can be made by simply stuffing and closing the top, rather than adding handles. An unlined bag can be created by simply adding premade or knit handles to the top of the bag. The stranded colorwork patch can be inserted directly into another knitted project, such as a blanket, etc. The options for this design are only limited to your imagination!

To make it easier to add a simple canvas tote to the inside of your bag for a quick liner with handles, add another 4 rows on each of the 2 color blocks of the main double knit bag to increase the height to 14”. Then simply insert the tote into your knitted bag and hand stitch them together along the top opening!
