Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 16 sts and 24 rows (about 4 inch) in Stockinette to knit bags that measure approximately 4 inch wide by 4 inch high x 2-1/2 inch deep. Save time, check your gauge. If the hook or needle listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge. Download the template for abbreviations and stitches not explained elsewhere.
    Note: For the spider bag, Tangerine felt may be substituted for the Orange Button listed in supplies. Cut 2 circles from the felt that are 7/8 inch each, place one on top of the other and sew to bag.
