I tried for ages to find a pattern for a knitted peg bag so in the end I gave up and made my own!


Here is the front;



Here is the back, showing the alternate way of attaching it to a coathanger, you can also attach it directly to your line!



Materials;

Chunky yarn, I used about 180g for this large bag
8mm needles
Tapestry needle
Coathanger

Pattern

CO 24 sts.
Work in seed stitch/moss stitch
Row 1: *K1,P1* repeat til end of row
Row 2: *P1,K1* repeat til end of row

Continue until you have reached desired size. I stopped at about 25 inches.

Work 6 sts, cast off 12 sts, work 6 sts.
Work 6 sts, put other 6 sts on a stitch holder.

Work 20 rows.
Make buttonhole on 21st row; K2, yfwd, K2tog, K2

Knit 4 rows garter stitch.
Cast off these 6 sts.

Return to sts on stitch holder and work 20 rows etc. (same as other side)

Making up

Sew on 2 large buttons and sew up seams, making sure you begin a little below the opening. Weave loose ends in.

This is a big peg bag because I have a large washing line and 80 pegs to put in it!
P.S. Just as I finished my peg bag it started raining! Typical!

I LIKE it!  Thanks for sharing this, it's a great idea!  Very clever. 

My mother cannot use her bag at the moment - the sparrows have built a nest in it!  She had to buy new clothespins since hers are covered in nest!
