To celebrate my First Blogiversary, I designed this small drawstring bag. It is worked in the round from the top down, using a long circular needle and the magic loop technique. This isn’t a very difficult project – if you can knit socks, you won’t have any problems with it.

A total of approx. 17 g of fingering-weight yarn in 5 colours, for instance Manos del Uruguay ‘Fino’. I used some left-over yarn from Tellina, in the colourway ‘Flora’.

Needles & notions
3.5 mm (US 4) circular needle at least 80 cm/32” long; a tapestry needle; 1 bead with a 5 mm hole (optional).

27 sts x 40 rows = 10 x 10 cm (4” x 4”) in stocking stitch worked in the round.

Finished measurements
Top to start of base 11 cm (4½’’); width 20 cm (8’’) around; base diameter 7 cm (2¾’’).
