Tote Bag for the Knifty Knitter Green Round Loom

Knifty Knitter Tote Bag

Skill level: Intermediate

Step 1: Using both yarns held together, e wrap the loom and knit 25 rows. Start and end the knitting at the peg on the side of the loom.

Step 2: Cut the end of the yarn you are wrapping with, leaving about 36", and thread it onto the yarn needle. Start to take the loops from the loom by threading through the loop on peg 1, then through the loop on peg 36, then the loop on peg 2, then the loop on peg 35. Continue back and forth in this method until you have taken all of the loops from the loom. Pull the yarn until the loops are woven together to make the bottom flat. Tie a knot in the yarn, and weave the ends into the piece.

Step 3: Single crochet around the top of the bag.

Step 4: Bag Handle: Holding both yarns together, wrap 4 pegs and knit back and forth for 134 rows, or 33". You may lengthen or shorten the handle if you wish.

Step 5: To make the clasp strap, wrap 4 pegs and knit for 15 rows.

Step 6: Using the cotton yarn, sew the handle to the sides of the bag at the fold sides. Sew the clasp to the middle of the back of the bag, and embellish with buttons, beads, or other accessories of your choice.
