Finally finished the eternal Turkish Stitch String Bag. And I call it eternal because it’s taken me months to finish such a simple patter. I first started and followed the pattern with sizes and stitches and everything, and when I got to the strap I run out of yarn. So rippit! And then I casted on less stitches and knitted away and got distracted by the spinning but it’s done! Yay!
- Pattern: Turkish Stitch String Bag, by Judy Gibson.
- Yarn: Katia Mississipi (60% cotton, 40% acrylic), green 85776 (found the labels *yay*), 2 skeins, 50 grams and 95 metres each.
- Gauge: no idea, I didn’t bother checking!
- Needles: Pony circulars, size 7mm, 100 cm long (had to use some sort of magic loop).
Notes: In the end I used smaller needles than called for (10mm), and casted on 11 stitches instead of 15 and adjusted the pattern accordingly. It’s a very easy pattern, even I could memorize it.
I’m about to make this very bag with my own handspun! Great knitting minds think alike I guess. I got a free sample of nylon with a fiber order, and it’s destined to be this kind of bag for my mom to use at the beach. Love yours – looks great!
