This listing is for the Pattern Only to knit your own Seamless Short Row Shaped Bags.

I designed this pattern to use those fabulous self-striping yarns to best effect with no sewing! These bags are all worked in one piece, from the bottom of the strap, around the bag and up the strap to the other end. The only sewing is to join the end of strap to the cast on edge. All the turning of the corners is done by short-row shaping. The I-cord is knitted on as you knit the bag - nothing to sew on or pick up later except the button loop.

Instructions are written row-by-row and include placing and moving markers so you'll never get lost!

Pattern is written for Sport, Worsted or Bulky weight yarn. Gauge is Not Important, although recommendations are given for 3 weights of yarn, along with suggested needle sizes which are 2 to 3 times smaller than normal for a tight stitch.

Sizes can be anything you want - from a tiny pocket-size purse to a large market bag size. Approximate yarn amounts are given for three different sized bags in the three different weights of yarn: 11", 14" and 16" across. And although I haven't done it yet, I believe this pattern would be great felted - especially if your bag comes out larger than you expected!

The tiny bag took about half a skein of Cascade Yarn's Fixation Bulky and measures only 4" across.

My patterns (Trish Designs) are innovative, unique and always fun to do. The patterns are expertly written in an easy-to-follow manner with step-by-step instructions. They include color pictures, schematics with all pertinent measurements, charts where applicable and written row-by-row stitch pattern instructions. Each pattern is in a clear plastic sheet protector which fits easily into a three-ring binder.

Most of my patterns are written generically with specific information as to the yarns used in the model. Others are written for specific yarns. All the patterns include complete materials information, including all yardage requirements and stockinette stitch gauges in addition to pattern stitch gauges, making it easy to substitute any yarn. They also include any special techniques used in the construction of the design.

If you have any questions with the knitting, I'm always happy to help.
