I found a great pattern at Cider Moon (http://cidermoon.com/cm0128.html) for "Baglove", which I have now dubbed, the best little scrap stashbustin' pattern around.

Each of these bags took 2 nights of knitting (maybe 3-4 hours total) and I only used yarn scraps from my stash. VERY easy. I highly recommend them as gift bags, little wrist purses, or you could skip the eyelet row and make them premie hats for charity! :) Try them felted for wool scarps - OH the possibilities! :teehee:

Thanks for looking! :hug:

way to bust some stash! :cheering:

do you really think they would work as preemie hats? :thinking: (not doubting you, just asking)

Yep, I think so...mostly because I folded over the opening (which would be the brim on a hat) and my daughter said "Mommy, that looks like a baby hat!"). You could just leave out the eyelet row (or leave it in and thread it with ribbon).

To make it a little bigger, you could always cast on 54 stitches intstead of 48, or even more to make a wider circumference, then just do some even decreasing after 5-6" of knitting.

Super quick knitting!

Those are cute! Is it big enough to use as a knitting bag for socks? Looks close.

hmm, now that I look at the pattern I would say not.

I say just increase the number of cast on stitches by 6 or 12 and follow the patern anyway! The pattern displays a ball of yarn inside, so it could fit.

Maybe use something chunkier with bigger needles, that will make it larger as well. I think these would be great sock project totes!

I just love little bags. And, with 3 daughters, you KNOW I'll be knitting some of these up!

Thanks for sharing!
