New Free eBook! Knitting Bags with Knitting Daily

Mar 18, 2011

Knitting bags is so much fun. They're the ultimate in usable knitting projects, too. Knitted bags come in all shapes and sizes—you can knit bags for just about any purpose!

We though you would enjoy some free knitted bag patterns, so we gathered 6 patterns into a new free eBook, Knitting Bags with Knitting Daily: 6 Free Knitting Bag Patterns.
                                                           6 Free Knitting Bag Patterns

The knitted bag patterns in this eBook were all designed by talented Interweave staff members. They include:

1. Eunny Jang, Editor, Interweave Knits: "The Coney Island Bag is a fun, fast way to use up scraps of brightly colored cotton. This knitting tote is named for its narrow eye-popping stripes, reminiscent of those adorning early twentieth-century bathing dresses."

2. Lisa Shroyer, Editor, Knitscene: "The Picnic Bag is made of two mirror-image halves, each curved by two sets of sock-heel-like shaping. Joining the half moons together yields a polygonal, 3-D knitted bag that is the perfect size for carrying a sock project and yarn."

3. Anna-Liza Armfield, Customer Support Representative: "The Lace Beach Bag looks charmingly frivolous and acts seriously functional: You can fit a beach towel, shorts, shirt, and your weekend reading in with ease—and still find your cell phone and keys safely tucked into an interior pouch."

4. Anne Merrow, eMag Editor: "You may not be able to make a silk purse from a sow's ear, but you can make silk into a Sow's Ear Coin Purse."

5. Marilyn Murphy, Contributing Executive Editor, Interweave Yarn Group: "The inspiration for the Spiral Market Bag came from Weldon's Practical Needlework. The original knit bag was worked in fine silk yarn on steel needles and was sized for glasses; changing the yarn weight and length makes a great bag for a handspindle and roving, or a bottle of wine on the way to a dinner party."

6. Anita Osterhaug, E-Media Project Manager: "This little three-sided Pyramid Project Bag dangles from the wrist—very handy for holding a small knitting or spinning project and for holding the ball of yarn or fiber as you knit or spin. This knit bag pattern is a fun exercise in knitting topology, being created from four equilateral triangles without seams."

We hope you enjoy these knitted bags! Why not start one this weekend?

Hello, I tried to download the pattern file but it is 'broken' - error message says is is damaged and cannot be read/opened. :( Has anyone else experienced problems with it, or is it just me? I'd really like to knit some of these!
