FO: "Knitting Needles Bag"
As seen of Episode 202 (on KDTV Series 200)...this Knitting Needles Bag is a quick knit! FREE PATTERN at Knitting Daily website. The bobbly stitch pattern is very easy to work. The stitch is created by alternating an 'inc 2' in the next stitch, and a 'dec 2' over the next 3 stitches. (K1-P1-K1 in the next stitch...P3tog over the next 3 st...and alternate those two maneuvers according to directions) It's a 4 row repeat. And the flip side row is all purl, and happens to be the RS. The working row is the WS.

This little bag is also in a book called Bag Style... It's been around for a while.

Here are the details for my bag. And more photos. The only modification I made: my bag is 2" taller. It is 12" tall by 20" wide, not including the handles.

I used double strands of Knit Picks City Tweed HW (aran) because I've had it lingering in my stash forever. Yes, this bag is a STASHBUSTER! Held double, my bag used 1041 yds. However, the original bag needs about 330 yds of super bulky (held single, of course).

My bag used 520 linear yds, but remember, my bag is 2" taller, and I added the 3.5" x 6" flap.

I didn't line this bag, or add any inside pockets, as many at Ravelry have done.
