Linen Stitch: Works on an even number of stitches. Row *Knit slip 1 with yarn in front. Repeat from * across, Row *Purl slip 1 with yarn in back. Repeat from * across. Repeat these two rows for pattern. When slipping stitches, always slip as if to purl.
This is a knitting pattern for a bag inspired by the Japanese knot bag. It is a clever bag design that requires no extra accessories for closure. I'd like this in a neutral color, with not buttons, but maybe an appliqué of some sort.
