An unstructured shoulder bag, with a knotted strap. The fabric is knit at a slightly loose gauge so the bag is stretchy. It can be worked at a tighter gauge and/or in sport weight yarn for a smaller bag.

Finished size: approximately 50 cm x 35 cm (20 inches x 13 inches)


  • 250 m (275 yds) of cotton, linen, or hemp dk yarn in each of color A and color B
  • Circular needle 60 or 80 cm long, in a diameter that gives you the appropriate gauge (about 4 – 4.5 mm)

Gauge: about 20 st/10 cm (4 inches)

For a smaller bag, replace dk yarn with sport weight yarn, and knit at a gauge of about 23 st/10 cm (4 inches).
