Sometimes a particular yarn sings a siren song too strong for me to resist. Such was the case when I came across Katia’s Gatsby – I am a sucker for sparkle, and this yarn is sparkly and fun. I was seized with the idea of knitting a little drawstring bag from it (why? I do not know…) and poked around Ravelry and everywhere else looking for a pattern I liked. Alas, I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted, so I decided to make one up myself! Here’s what resulted:
Exactly what I wanted! Small, but not too small. A little bit of seed stitch at the top for interest, a row of eyelets for a drawstring I-cord. It’s worked in dk weight, but you don’t have to go for sparkle if you don’t want. It would be equally pretty in some soft baby alpaca or crisp merino. Done and done. Free pattern is here! This knits up quickly on double-points or Magic Loop, and makes a great gift for a teen or a teacher or a great container for a gift card or other present. Enjoy!
