“I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free.
For his eye is on the Sparrow,
and I know he watches me.”

The drawstring bag is worked in the round from a provisionally cast on tab. It finishes with a picot hem, and double eyelets for the drawstrings. There are lots and lots of twist stitches, some cables, extended loop cables, and interesting increases and decreases. There are both complete charts and complete written instructions. This is not TV knitting, but you won’t be bored.

I will donate $5.00 of each Sparrow Reticule sold to Give Kids the World Village.

If you prefer to work with sport weight yarn, you will need 442 - 450 yards (404 - 411 m) and your bag will be 3’’/7.5cm deep, 10’’/ 25.5 cm high, 10’’/25.5 cm wide.
