Three tote or shopping bag knitting patterns:
SELF-COVER BAG: Cover a ready-made calico or canvas tote bag to stand out from the crowd.
This pattern can be worked to cover any size bag; two squares (or rectangles) are knitted from the centre outwards. It can be worked in any thickness of yarn from 4ply to super-chunky. Variegated, multi-coloured, handpainted or multi-yarn ball yarns will emphasise the different directions of knitting.
BIAS BAG: Knitting on the bias is a great technique that is really easy to do. Knitting like this means you can use ANY YARN to knit these bags, from thin to thick, commercial or handspun. I've written the instructions for two sizes of bags - the handbag is 36cm (14in) square and the tote bag is 54cm (21in) square. But because the bags are knitted on the bias, you can make them any size you want.
PANEL TOTE BAG: Worked in panels of stocking stitch that are joined as you knit. You can use any DK yarn or a mix of DK and aran weight yarns. It’s ideal for using up small amounts of yarn, part balls, stash yarns etc; each panel takes approximately 30g. The bag can also be worked in multi-coloured, handpainted, or variegated yarns.
Full and clear instructions with stitch diagrams. Instructions for sewing onto ready-made bag and linings.
