Drawstring Bag worked in Fair Isle Stranded Knitting.

Featured Techniques: Working with purl garter stitch, working with two yarns in the left hand, yarn dominance, simple two-color designs and complex two-color designs (right side and wrong side), corrugated ribbing (on the right side and the wrong side), twisting a cord. Lots of photos accompany the directions.

Yarn: I used Rauma Strikkegarn, but any firm DK weight yarn will work.

Size: One size, approximately 11” (28 cm) wide, 3.5” (9 cm) deep, and 11.5” (29 cm) tall.
