A cute little project bag, inspired by a beautiful knitting bag that was made for me by my friend Non, who can sew beautifully.

It is knitted using just five JC Rennie Miniballs. The base is knitted flat in garter stitch, then stiches picked up around that and continued in the round in stocking stitch. The colour block sections are worked flat and then sewed together with one section being done in stranded colourwork. Once the colour blocks are sewn together then the bag is continued in the round and the handles are created by casting off then on again. The finished bag is then lightly felted to give it some structure.

Ideal size for a small WIP like socks or a shawl.
