Funny story, I’ve actually had this pattern ready for some time, I think I wrote it back in January, but I just had so many other ideas come up (all those seasonal ones) that I just never got around to publishing this. For this design, I thought it’d be fun to add to the Diana Line, always a favorite, with something quick and fun and pretty useful. I don’t know how many times my sunglasses have been scratched in my purse. This bag comes in handy to combat that.

  • Worsted weight yarn/ size #4 yarn

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st from the alst.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of some rows does not count as a stitch.
  • For this pattern, you will have to know how to work into the back third loop only.
  • The bag and the strings are worked separately. You work the bag and then add the strings after, weaving them through the openings on row 22.

Draw strings:
Ch 40 to 11.5″ in length to create the string for the draw string portion of the bag. Once you’ve made the string the length you’d like, run it through the ch-2 spaces from row 22, this creates a draw string effect and secures the opening.

Tada! I hope you like this pattern and find it handy. See you next week!
