Bag Minder

Knit the Bag Minder on double points or two circular needles size 10 1/2 using your choice of worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart.

Free PDF here.

Cast on 30 stitches, join and knit in the round for 3 inches.
Begin pattern stitch:
Row 1) k1, yotwice across row
Row 2) knit the k1 and the first yo together, drop the second yo without doing anything else to it

Repeat these two rows for as long as you like. Mine is 12 inches.

Do top cuff by knitting every stitch for 3 inches.

Bind off all but 4 stitches and make i-cord with them for the length you like.
I made mine long enough to slip over a doorknob.
When i-cord is as long as you like cut the yarn leaving an 8 inch tail and pass the tail through the stitches of the i-cord and then use the tail to sew it to the very beginning of the i-cord, making a loop.

That's it. Mine is stuffed with 20 bags for the picture. The mesh is much prettier than the picture shows.
Stuff the bags in and remove them through either end.
