Recently, I had the fun opportunity to test a pattern for Christina over at The Sometimes Crafter. And in a weird stroke of luck, I was looking for a pattern to make one of my friends a tote for her knitting projects. How awesome that the pattern test was for a knitting bag!
The pattern is straightforward and easy to follow and I love all the little pockets for knitting needles, patterns/books, and the little zipper pocket for small scissors and stitch markers. It's really exactly what I was looking for!
The pattern calls for pockets on only one side of the bag but I went ahead and put them on both sides because really, can you have too many pockets on a project bag?
The lining is the same as the print used on the various pockets. The main fabric is a cotton/linen blend.
I enjoyed this pattern and I learned a few new things like how to do that inset zipper pocket, how to make a bag with a bottom piece (instead of boxed corners), and how to make those folded over handles. Fun!
If you're looking for a great knitting/project bag, head on over to The Sometimes Crafter and grab the pattern. Since I'm giving this one away I know I'll be making another one for myself. And while you're there check out the super cute log cabin needle book and the ukelele mini quilt!
