I made this bag so I would have something to carry my yarn in for knitting on the go. You could whip this up in an hour. I made an I-cord strap but you could make a crochet one if you dont know how Smiley.



Materials

Size F/5 3.75mm crochet hook

2 size 6 double pointed needles

1 skein Patons Silk Bamboo in "Sea"

Pattern

Chain 4, join with slip stitch to form a ring.

1. Ch1, 1 sc in the same loop, 2 sc in each of the next 3 sc, sl st in ch1 to join.

2. Ch1, 2 sc in each sc around, sl st in ch1 to join.

3. Ch1 *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

4. Ch1 *sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

5. Ch1 *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

6. Ch1 *sc in next 4sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

7. Ch1 *sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

8. Ch1 *sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

9. Ch1 *sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

10. Ch1 *sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from *to* around, sl st in ch1 to join.

11. Ch1, sc around, sl st to ch1 to join.

Repeat row 11 20 times.

Buttonhole Row

Ch1, sc in next 14 sc, ch 10, skip next 3 sc, sc in 4th sc and all remaining sc around, sl st in ch1 to join.

Sl st next round to finish.

I-Cord Strap

Cast on 4sts using double pointed needles.

Knit, don't turn.

Slip the sts back to the beginning of the needle and k the row again.

Continue in this manner until you have a short length of knitting, pull down on the cord and the gap at the back will close.

Continue until your cord measure approximately 4 feet. If you are tall you may want to make yours longer, I dont need a long strap because I'm only 5 foot 1

Finishing

Slip the end of each side of your I-cord through the bag from the inside out about 1/2 an inch from the top of the bag and tie a knot an inch from the end of the cord.

Add a button of your choosing.
