Thinking ahead to Christmas, I recently went looking for a wine bottle gift bag pattern and was surprised that after several searches I couldn’t find a design that appealed to me. Mostly, I didn’t care for the ways the tops were handled, so I came up with a couple of my own, using lace stitches shown in “The Knitter’s Bible.” What I like about these stitches is that the holes for the ties are part of the patterns. On the left is Norwegian Fir and on the right is Horseshoe Lace. These were knitted on No. 4 needles with Red Heart Knitting Worsted that I had left over from another project.
I hope I’ve done this photo thing correctly. I thought an actual picture would appear above but apparently only the link to my “flickr” image is supposed to show.
Now I would like to find patterns for tiny Christmas stockings or other pretty miniature ornaments to attach to the ties. Any suggestions?
