The Ribbed Bag of Many Things came about as something I made up for my roommate to put her headphones and mp3 player in, but it could be used to hold just about anything!. It’s a bag knit in the round using 1 by 1 ribbing, then seamed at the bottom with whip stitch, or mattress stitch if you prefer. Eyelets at the top allow for a twisted cord or optional I-chord drawstring.

The sample shown was made in a now discontinued sport-weight acrylic yarn, but the pattern is highly adaptable to almost any yarn weight. It’s best to use a yarn blend without a lot of drape so the bag is less likely to stretch out of shape.
