The Lille Bitte Bag is constructed top-down. First the i-cord drawstring is made. Then the top hem of the bag is knit, folded over the i-cord, and continued in construction working in the round in stockinette. Finally, the bottom of the bag is sewn together using the kitchener stitch.

This bag is very simple and fast to make. If you want a smaller or bigger bag, you simply need to cast on fewer or more sts to the original method. The pattern remains the same. Keep in mind that you may have to make adjustments to the length of the i-cord.
