My knitter friends in Bangalore aka Bangalore Ravelry Brigade had a Potluck lunch planned last week. In the last minute, I was asked if I could bring along a handmade gift. I don’t sew (which is considered faster than knitting), and I am not that good at crocheting that I could just whip up something in a hurry, so that left only knitting I could fall back on. I didn’t have enough time to search for patterns on Ravelry, sort through them and finalize on one, so I took the easy way out and created something on my own and that is how Swirl Wrist Bag was born.
Swirl is a seamless wrist bag with garter stitch base and slanting eyelets on the body. It comes with three options for the strap: garter, stockinette and i-cord. Swirl is quick to knit and is perfect as a project bag for knitters and a wristlet bag for
muggles non-knitters. It is ideal for newbie knitters who want to try out provisional cast on, lace and i-cords. The instructions for lace stitch pattern is provided as written instructions and chart.
One size: 7” base and 9” height.
Any Heavy/Worsted Weight Yarn
18 sts and 20 rows = 4” in
Gauge is not critical for this project

Speaking of contests…. I searched your blog, and your Ravelry post about the contest naming your Tee… I can’t find the “winner” post anywhere… did I miss it? Who do I congratulate? I am so curious to know which name you picked for the cute tee in your previous post!
I have a few shortlisted, but am waiting for the pattern to be released so that I can announce the winner and send her a PDF immediately. I don’t want the winner to wait!
I love colors and the girliness of this bag!
