Turkish Stitch String Bag

January 2003
Turkish stitch
US 13 - 9.0 mm
This pattern is available for free.

This bag can be knit in any weight yarn to any gauge.

From the pattern website:

The Turkish Stitch used for the body of the bag is one of the family of faggotting stitches that goes back to knitting antiquity. Its purled cousin is called Purse Stitch, which indicates its historic use for objects like this string bag.

This bag can be knitted in any string or thread--preferably of a non-stretching fiber like cotton--from crochet cotton to sport weight, maybe thicker, using any very large needle size. This pattern is about as "mindless" as knitting gets, and goes very fast.
