WIP bag pattern

Post by grizle » Fri Nov 12, 2010 4:01 pm

Since i am doing Tikkis mystery KAL i have came to the realisation that a WIP bag might be needed (the kitchen bench isn't up to standard :smt044 ). Can anyone point me in the direction of where i find a pattern for one?

Also what sort of design is best? One with zip length-ways or one with drawstring top or something else?

I'm trying to find the pattern for the one that hangs over your wrist... two straps one longer than the other... maybe I just dreamed it :roll:

Simple drawstring bags seem to be very popular

I prefer either the above or drawstring with toggle to keep little hands out then zips had a few disasters with either a sock or yarn getting stuck :twitch:

i was thinking about this this arvo, and was going to hunt out the tute for the one mine is, BUT as much as i love it i am going to make some drawstring ones cause you have to take the ball out when knitting as i too have had it stick in the zip.

i am going to make something like this

That is very cute and the instructions seem easy to follow - I'll have to put that on my list. :wink:

For those of you that have spotted this thread - i made the bagsket in the second link and thought i'd mention that if you want it for knitting and have long needles in it you will have to adjust the height. I thought about this once i had made mine. Perfect for circs though.
