Mystery Knitted Bag - The Bag of Many Colours



Written by Wendy Poole.  

Copyright © Wendy Poole 2013. For personal use only.


The Mystery Bag (The Bag of Many Colours) is a project  I’ve designed for you to make in small sections and without any major outlay.

The project will introduce you one square at a time to a variety of stitch patterns, including textured stitches, twisted stitches, cables and bobbles in small sections.  At the end of the project I will also give you instructions on how to make a fabric lining which is optional.

My bag will be made using 4 colours of (UK weight) Double Knitting yarn, cream, pale lilac, grey and plum.  However you can also make it all in one colour or even use up oddments from your stash.

I have based my yarn quantities on using “Stylecraft Special Double Knitting” which is 100% acrylic and measures 295 metres / 322 yards per 100 grams.  You can use any alternative make of standard DK yarn, however you may need to allow more yarn if you are using a wool/acrylic mix yarn or 100% wool.

As the bag is knitted in sections of contrasting colours it is not vital that the dye lot numbers on the ball bands match either..!!
