This Knit Camping Shower Bag will hold and protect your shower supplies. The nylon yarn is easy to care for and the bottom will also keep the dirt or grime out of your bag. In addition, the aluminum basket bottom won’t rust. Instructions are included to make the bag wider and longer or shorter.

The yarn for this design was provided by Red Heart Yarns. The basket base was provided by Hooked For Life Publishing LLC. All opinions are my own.

There will be a giveaway at the end of this post for a Knit Camping Shower Bag Kit. The winner will receive an aluminum base from Hooked For Life Publishing LLC, in addition to the yarn needed from Red Heart Yarns.

Hooked For Life Publishing LLC has been kind enough to provide a code for 30% off the aluminum bases until 1/31/20 or until the stock runs out, so don’t delay!

yo – yarn over

Getting Started:
  • Round counts are at the end of each row after the period, if the count has changed from the previous round. – {count here}
  • For this bag it is recommended that the unused color is carried on the inside of the bag, as this yarn tends to unravel easily, so less ends to weave in are a good thing!
  • To make bag wider add multiples of 3 to the cast on. Each multiple of 3 will add just over 1/2″
  • To make bag taller or shorter make more or less stripes. Each stripe is about 1″ tall.
