The Loop Bag

A super cute, 70s style cotton bag – suitable for those knitters who’d like a little bit of a challenge.

Designed by LAD Helen Rose for Lauren Aston Designs, this loop bag is a fun take on the popular string shopper bags, but finished with loop handles instead to create a loose handbag style.

Using a combination of knit stitch, yarn over and K2tog, you create a diagonal lace stitch which follows the bag around. With a gusset and ‘cinched’ handles, you’ve got plenty of space without it being too ‘gappy’ that things fall through the holes!

You’ve got a choice of two handle finishes; a light wood effect or a rich amber* finish. With 15 Big Cotton colours to choose from, you can make a whole selection of bags for friends and family!

Perfect size for carrying shopping, handbag essentials or your yarn. We’d love to see how you style yours…


approx 42 x 34cm wide


Khaki with wood effect handles


You can find a video on how to attach the handles to the bag here.
