Loom Knit Bag


Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 221 Posts

The completed loom knit bag.There are many options for making things from a knit hat loom besides a hat. I found this fairly simple pattern to make a "purse" which could be used for a swimming bag (has holes for the wet swimming suit to dry) or for whatever purpose you might want to use it for.

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Make a slip stitch with yarn and put on the single bottom peg on the loom. Cast on the first row of stitches by wrapping the yarn around the first peg, counterclockwise, two times. Using the loom hook, lift the bottom loop up and over the top loop. Continue all the way around the pegs, wrapping one peg at a time.

  3. For the second round, you will be doing a "figure eight" stitch. Wrap two pegs as follows: Wrap the yarn in front of the first peg, behind the second peg, in front of the first peg, then lift the bottom wrap over the top of the two previous wraps. For the second peg, wrap the yarn around the top and lift the bottom wrap over the top of the two previous wraps. Continue this "figure eight" stitch all the way around. Do this same pattern for about 24 rows or 7.5 inches.

  5. The next two rows will remove the stitches from the pegs. To do the cast off stitch, wrap the yarn around the bottom of the peg. Insert the hook through the loop that is on the peg and pull the wrapped yarn at the bottom through this loop. Lift the loop off the peg and then put the loop onto the peg at the right. Pull the bottom loop over the top. Take that loop and put it back onto the peg to the left. (It might be good to look at the video for this step. Start at the 9 minute mark.) Continue all the way around until there is one loop left on the peg.

  7. To make the handle, pull the first stitch that was "cast off" from the previous round and place it on the peg to the left of the last loop. Do the "figure eight" stitch that was done in the first 24 rounds--only you are using only two pegs and two loops to make a narrow handle. Repeat this step until it reaches 20" in length. Cut, leaving a 4 or 5" tail. Attach to opposite side of the purse. Knot. Weave tail into loops to hide.

  9. To finish the purse, thread three feet of yarn into a large eye needle and knot at the end. Turn the bag inside out. Lay the bag flat and insert the needle at the bottom on one side. Sew the bag closed at the bottom of the bag weaving back and forth through the loops with the needle and yarn. When you have sewn across the entire bottom of the bag, turn the bag, and sew back across to the other end (where you started) to secure the stitches at the bottom. End with a knot. Turn bag right side out.
