It's a simple pattern that's really cool! You can use silk or cotton yarn! (I used cotton, Lion Brand Cotton, Candy Colors)! I'm still working on it though!:knitting: The circular needles are pretty easy to use!:happydancing::star:

is this a market-type bag? what will you use it for?
07-20-2007, 12:06 AM
More of a fashion bag, but I could take to places like the market. By the way, i'm only 12!

It seems most people agree that cotton yarn is the best for this project! :) :happydance: :knitting:

I used Lion Chenille Thick and Quick to make a bag for my not SIL. I couldn't find a black velvet one for her RenFair pirate costume, so decided to make one. I did it on size 8s so the stitches would be snug.

That's a cool idea! :):knitting:

The name of the pattern is Give it a Whirl Bag! :knitting: I found it in Creative Knitting Magazine. (It was from last summer!)

I just made it in stockinette - what else are you going to do with black thick chenille...?
07-20-2007, 11:06 PM
Huh? I'm using cotton! I said the chenille wwas a good idea though!

That was a rhetorical question... Meaning one in which there's no answer required as it's self explanatory.

Oops sorry about that! :(

Can I share the pattern with other users or is that not allowed?:think:

Since it's one that was in a magazine, no. If it's on the internet, you can link to it.

Ok thanks! I just didn't want to anything I wasn't supposed to.
