My version of Knitty’s Everlasting Bagstopper.
- 350-400 yds cotton or hemp yarn (I recommend Lily Sugar N Cream)
- US 5-7 needles (circular – 24″)
- US 10.5 needles (circular – 24″)
With smaller needles, CO 19 sts.
Knit 2 rows.
Row 3 (RS): k1, kfb, k to last 2, kfb, k1
Row 4 (WS): knit all sts
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until you have 55 sts.
RS: k1, k2tog, k to last 3, k2tog, k1
WS: knit all sts
Repeat these 2 rows until you are back to 19 sts.
With RS facing, pick up and knit 19 sts along each side of your base. You will have 114 sts total.
You should now be working in the round. Knit 5 rounds.
Change to larger needles and knit 1 round.
Begin mesh pattern:
Row 1: *YO, k2tog* around
Row 2: k all sts
Continue in mesh…
