I made this bag to hold a few things on my bird watching, dog walking expeditions. It is about 3 1/2 inches long and 3 3/4 inches wide. Inside is a pocket. On the outside is a pocket. It has a loop to attach to your wrist or belt. My bag holds a cell phone, a small bag of bags, a small notebook and pen, identification and debit card If needed, a couple of small dog treats, and a lip balm. Not bad for such a small bag! If you have a birding application on your cell phone, and a good camera, you’re as set as your canine friend for a good stroll.
At a readers request I’m making this pattern in u-wrap instead of e-wrap. U-wrap means you lay your working yarn above the wrapped loop on the peg and pull the loop over the working yarn. This makes a neat, tight stitch more like the traditional knit stitch. It also uses a little more yarn. But this pattern will just take a bit, maybe a ball that will fit in your fist?
Use a 24 peg loom, wrap all pegs. Purl 1, knit 11, purl 1, knit 11.
Repeat round 1 for 24 rounds. Knit off 1st 13 stitches.
Knit flat for 2 rows. Turn.
Purl 1 row. Turn.
Knit 2 rows. Turn.
Purl 1 row. Turn.
Knit 7 rows. Turn.
Knit 3, knit 1 off, knit 2, knit 1 off, knit 3. Turn. This made the button holes.
Knit 2 rows. Knit off all stitches.
For inside pocket, e-wrap 10 pegs, turn. Knit 20 rows. Knit off.
Sew to inside of bag. Sew bottom of bag closed from the inside. (turn bag inside out and attach pocket, then sew bag closed.)
For handle, wrap all pegs, turn, knit 1 row, turn knit off. sew to upper edges, along the purl stitches of the last row.
Wrap all pegs. Knit 6 rounds. Knit off. attach circle to outside front of the bag. Sew on buttons.
