Knit Picks Dishie Twist
I used the color Conch for my bag, but any of the colors would work well. If you prefer solid colors rather than the twisted look, try regular Dishie instead.
Feeling adventurous? Mix both solid and twisted colors! Use 1 color for the base of your bag and another for the top. If you do this, you will need 1 extra skein for the bottom color. The bottom uses less than a full skein (around 100 yds), but the top uses more than 2 full skeins so you will still need 3 skeins for the top.
Bag #4 Materials List
- Yarn: 3 skeins of Knit Picks Dishie Twist – 100% cotton, worsted weight yarn (190 yds / 100g per skein). Shown in color #28247 – Conch.
- Hook: US size H / 5mm hook or size needed to match gauge
- Yarn needle
- Circular bag handles (see note below)
- 1-2″ button (optional)
Circular bag handles come in a variety of sizes, materials, and colors. Any size between about 4″ and 8″ in diameter should be fine. The bag may sit a little differently depending on the diameter. Any color or material you like is fine as well. I used brown, wood handles that are about 5.4″ in diameter.
15 ldc x 9 rounds = 4 inches.
The first section of the pattern can be used as a gauge swatch.
