A little project bag — or anything bag, dotted with clovers for a bit of easy colourwork. This bag is designed to use one sock set, with the mini skein used for the small accents. The bag is an oval shape and fits a surprising amount inside! The I-Cord can be tightened leaving a small opening, so you can keep your yarn ball inside while knitting on the go!

One Sock Set —
MC: 100 grams fingering weight yarn
CC: 20 grams fingering weight yarn

2.25mm circular needles for Magic Loop
3.5mm circular needles of length 30 or 40 cm, or DPNs
use size needed to obtain gauge


  • darning needle, to weave in ends
  • crochet hook, size 3.5 mm (there is an alternative option if you don’t have one)
  • four stitch marker, ideally one different for BOR marking
  • scissors, or other tool for breaking the yarn
  • optional: bodkin or safety pin, for threading I-Cord
  • optional blocking tools: a plastic bag (like a grocery bag or small rubbish bag) & something to fill it (such as uncooked rice, dried beans, pillow stuffing, or even a small towel or scarf — I used uncooked rice)
