Loom Knit Gift Bags
This little project came to me when I woke in the middle of the night and couldn’t fall back to sleep. I remembered a cute needle knitted gift bag pattern I had seen in a book. The next morning, I grabbed my loom, and this pattern was the result. These gift bags are fun, quick to make, and are only limited by the size of your loom and your imagination.
Knitting Loom: Regular gauge round knitting loom, any size. Samples were made on Cindy Albert’s Adult Sock Loom (blue bag) and DA Baby Hat Loom (gray bag).
Yarn: One strand of any worsted weight “soft” yarn. See Pattern Notes for more information on yarn choice. Amounts vary. Samples were made with Caron Simply Soft (blue bag) and Lion Brand Wool-Ease (gray bag).
Notions: Tapestry Needle, Knitting tool, Crochet hook, Tape Measure
Gauge: Not important
I strongly suggest knitting a few rows with the chosen yarn and loom to see how it knits up. You want the yarn to lift easily over the pegs to make a soft bag. Also, test to see if a loop will stretch to an adjacent peg for the yarn overs. I have had very good results with Caron Simply Soft and Lion Brand Wool-Ease. I’m sure there are others that would work well too.
