Isn't this spiral stitch fun? I love the texture and the appearance because it dresses up the Sugar and Cream yarn.
for the gift bag can be found on Deb's Hakucho
blog. She calls it a DYO (Design Your Own) Drawstring Bag. It is fairly large (8.5 inches tall when full and nearly a 20 inch circumference). I knit the bag on size 7 needles, using 3.5 ounces of Sugar and Cream, which is approximately 1 3/4 skeins (2 ounce skeins).
I opted to purchase cord for the tie because I didn't think I had enough yarn left to knit an i-cord. Personal tastes determine the length of cord, and since I prefer to have a droopy bow, I purchased 1.25 yards of cord.
Once filled and tied, the bag creates a nice gift. I still need to knot and trim the ends of the cord.
The spiral stitch looks great on this bag.ReplyDelete
