Easy Knitting Patterns - Bags

Updated on November 23, 2014

Easy Bag Knitting Patterns

One of the great things about making a bag as one of your first projects is that if you get your tension a bit wrong and it ends up being a bit too big or a bit too small, it doesn't really matter. Make one of these bags for yourself or for a friend.

This bag is a little trickier than some because you have to pick up stitches around a completed rectangle. This project also contains a picture step by step tutorial for felting your bag in a washing machine.

Felting your knitted creation

A knitted bag will have gaps between the stitches where small objects could work their way out. So you might like to felt your bag. You can do this in a washing machine, like in the instructions in the above link, or you could do it by hand, like in the video below.

Have you ever tried felting before?
