Khaki with wood effect handles

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 stitches 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. It is the perfect size for carrying shopping, handbag essentials or your yarn.


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