The Inca Eco Drawstring Bag pattern is an easy knit project that's perfect for any season.
This drawstring bag is made in the round on a long circular needle using the magic loop technique. (If you aren't familiar with the magic loop, check out this instructional video by KnitPicks.)
Cheri's design uses slipped stitches to create a window pane effect. The bag is large enough to fit a jumbo skein of yarn. It would also make a lovely, eco-friendly gift bag!
Cheri chose two contrasting colors (Ecru and Wine) for this version, but you could also use two shades of the same color for a different effect.
