Linen Stitch Gift Bag

 I thought I would do a pattern on how I made these cute small gift bags. 



I have made these with  size 6 and size 8 needles

Cast on 20
Row1-2: slip one, knit
Row3: slip one, k2tog, *yo, k2tog*
Row 4-5: knit

Start linen stitch
Row 6: slip 1, *with yarn in front, slip 1, knit* repeat until the end
Row 7: Slip one, purl
Row 8 slip one, *knit, with yarn in front, slip 1* repeat, knit the last stitch
Row 9: Repeat row 7

Repeat row 6-9 until you have about 10 inches. End on Row 6 or 8.

Final five rows
Row1-2: slip one, knit
Row3: slip one, k2tog, *yo, k2tog*
Row 4-5: knit, cast off the last row.

Sew up the sides. If you want a flat bottom, stop a few stitches off the bottom, flatten it out and sew that part out.




It is my plan to make a video for this. I am not sure when. It will pop up here once I make one. I have not done a knitted video yet, I plan on this being my first one.
