Designed by the creative team over at Lion Brand yarns, this easy knit tote bag is just perfect for sprucing up your outfit. It is available in one size and has a measurement of 17 inches by 26 inches before the assembly.

The original bag was made from the discontinued cotton ease yarn; however, you can easily substitute any smooth yarn with a weight of 4 or medium, like this 24/7 Cotton yarn.

Besides the yarn, you will also need a size US 8 knitting needle, as well as a cable needle for the lovely cable details. The knitting needle size for those using the metric system is 5 mm.

Moreover, you will be slipping stitches when you knit this project. To slip a stitch simply means that you will pass the stitch from one needle to another without working it.

If you’re not familiar with how to slip a stitch, we have an excellent step-by-step tutorial for the technique here: Slipping Stitches Knitwise or Purlwise.
