Knitting pattern for a child's messenger style bag. It can be knitted using any choice of yarn and needle size.
I first designed this bag for my daughter to match a dress I knitted her using the leftover yarn from the dress. After sharing a picture of the bag on a few social media knitting pages I received requests for the pattern. So I refined the design and wrote up the pattern, and here it is!
The bag pictured is knitted in Cotton DK yarn on 3.75mm needles and the approx. dimensions are as follows:
19cm (7.5”) wide, 14 cm (5.5”) long excluding strap, 5 cm (2”) deep.
I've also knitted this bag in 4-ply cotton yarn, using 3 mm needles, and it came out around two thirds of the above size.
