The Quick Little Knit Bag was created because I designed a Quick Little (crochet) Bag a few years ago and it is still super popular. I thought knitters deserved a fun and fabulous quick little bag as well. I played around with the yarn for a while and came up with a stitch pattern that made me happy. Unlike the original, this bag is finished off with a button and some tassels. Happy knitting!

I’ve also designed a Quick Little Tunisian Bag to be part of this set.

  1. Thank you for the free pattern. Planning on making 2 for each of my granddaughters. However, I noticed that Row 24 is missing or have the row numbers after Row 23 been numbered incorrectly?

    Thank you.

    • Oops, I seam to have had a counting issue. I just skipped the number, but the pattern is correct. I fixed the numbers now. Thank you!
