Free Knitting Pattern for a Work Bag

Today’s featured free knitting pattern is one of my favourites.

Vintage style work bag with free knitting pattern

A Knitted Work Bag from the Brisbane Courier, November 29th 1928

This bag is made from a large knitted rectangle, gathered at the top to fit the handles. Simply knit a rectangle, line one side with fabric and attach to whatever style handles you like.

I knit mine with worsted weight wool but you can easily knit one with fingering weight yarn and use smaller handles for a dainty hand bag.

I hope you’re enjoying my showcase of vintage and free patterns so far. If you have any requests please let me know in the comments!


Free Knitting Pattern – Vintage Shopping Bag

I came across today’s free knitting pattern while trying to find a different one. I liked this one so much that I’m going to add it to my Ravelry queue 🙂

Free knitting pattern for a vintage shopping bag

Knit from fingering weight cotton on large needles with comfy padded handles.

From the pattern:

“THIS little carry-all is especially useful. It weighs under 2oz., has firm, padded handles that are comfortable to hold, and can be carried in a handbag in case one sees an unexpected bargain.”

I don’t know about you but that happens to me all the time (and I have the stash to prove it)! 🙂

Tomorrow I’ll show you one of my favourite work bags that I knit from a vintage pattern.
