DIRECTIONS:

    • Bags will stretch to accommodate many different size gifts. Height may be adjusted based on size of gift. Always lay bags flat so they are relaxed to measure.

    • Green 24-peg round loom: Wine bottle
    • Orange 36-peg round loom: Blue gift bowl

      ROUND GIFT BAGS:

    1. With super bulky yarn & appropriate loom for project, cast on all pegs using e-wrap cast on.
    2. Loom to 4" height for small bag or 11" height for wine bottle.
    3. With only one loop on each peg, cut yarn leaving 24" tail.
    4. Thread ending yarn tail onto tapestry needle.
    5. Starting with peg 1, insert the needle below the loop & pull the yarn through. Repeat for all pegs; repeat for peg 1 to remove any gap.
    6. Remove loops from pegs & turn bag inside out.
    7. Gather snugly & fasten off securely. Weave in tails with yarn needle.
    8. Turn bag right side out. Top edge of bag will roll naturally to create an attractive brim.
      DOUBLE WALL GIFT BOWLS:
      Small white bowl & large blue bowl.
    1. With super bulky yarn & appropriate loom for project, cast on all pegs using e-wrap cast on.
    2. Loom to twice the finished height: 3" for small bowl, 4" for large bowl.
    3. With one loop on each peg & at beginning of round, reach inside & pull up the beginning edge.
    4. Use the beginning tail to align the first stitch in the beginning round with the first stitch on the loom.
    5. Place loops from the beginning edge over the corresponding loop on each peg being careful to align the loops so the stitches match.
    6. Use the loom tool to knit off the bottom loops over the top loops.
    7. Continue to e-wrap & knit 4 more rounds for the small bowl & 8 more rounds for the large bowl.
    8. Follow steps 3-8 for the Round Gift Bag to finish.
      FLAT BOTTOM GIFT BAG
    1. With super bulky yarn, cast on all pegs on 26-peg rectangular loom using e-wrap cast on.
    2. E-wrap & knit around until piece measures 6" tall.
    3. To bind off: With one loop on each peg lift the loops from the center 12 lower pegs; place them on the corresponding pegs on the upper edge.
    4. Knit off the bottom loops over the top loops on each of the top row pegs. 14 pegs remain with loops on them.
    5. Start on the end opposite from the working yarn; use crochet hook to pick up the last loop; then pick up the next-to-last loop on the hook.
    6. Pull the next-to-last loop through the last loop to bind off first stitch. Continue binding off the remaining loops in the same manner until one loop remains.
    7. Cut working yarn leaving an 8" tail. Pull yarn tail through the last loop to fasten off.
    8. Weave in tails with yarn needle. Turn bag right side out.

    Tie Gift Bags Closed. Tie bag closed with a bow or knot from leftover yarn. Add pompoms.
      Pompoms:
    1. Use fine or medium weight yarn & Boye® PomPom Maker, or cut a piece of cardboard twice as long as the desired size of the pompom & 4" wide.
    2. Wrap yarn around cardboard 75 times for medium weight yarn or 150 times for fine yarn. The more wraps, the fluffier the pompom will be.
    3. Thread yarn needle with 8" length of yarn. Insert needle between cardboard & yarn wraps at top edge.
    4. Remove needle; tie yarn tightly around all wraps.
    5. Cut wraps at opposite edge to form pompom. Shake pompom to distribute yarn evenly.
    6. Trim ends as needed.
