Bricks and Mortar Project Bag

By Bobbi Jo Quigley for Yarnsomniacs Everywhere

 

This bag also doubles nicely as a stylish large hat/scarf combo.

 

Pattern calls for:

US 17(12 mm) Circular needles, at or over 32inches length.

GAUGE: 8 sts = 4"/10cm

Yarn: 2 balls of yarn (100g each), contrasting colours in a bulky weight (example: Colinette Point Five or Malabrigo Rasta) yarn that calls for US17 needles. You can also hold a few smaller strands together to make a thicker yarn, and this would look pretty cool.

 

Abbreviations:

K=Knit

P=purl

MC=main colour

CC=contrasting colour

Sl= slip stitch

Wyif=with yarn in front

Wyib=with yarn in back

 

Tip: carry CC colour up the rows by twisting (loose is fine, don’t pull it) it with MC at beginning of each round that you are not using CC 

Bottom Up:

 

With CC/Mortar colour: CO 48 sts (24 on each needle) Using Judy's Magic Cast-On (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATmagiccaston.html)  

Put marker in to keep track of beginning of your row.

 

Row 1: K through front loops on first needle/24 stitches, and through the back loops for second needle/last 23 stitches (because these stitches were twisted, but they won't be after this).
