Free Project – Doggie-Poo Bag ToteMarch 2, 2016 / byFree Designs Admin / Categories : Free Printables, Free Project
Basic Skills Necessary:
- Knit in the round
- Yarn over
- Knit 2 together
I had a storage box full of small balls of sock yarn… too much to throw away, not enough to make anything wearable. I have dogs and I walk them daily. I was always forgetting to stick a bag or two in my pocket. I was looking at various dog waste bag containers in Petco and Petsmart and suddenly it hit me… knit one! So I did. I loop the i-cord around the handle of each dog’s leash. Dog friends oooo’ed and ahhhh’ed over them, so I knit more. Next thing you know, I am knitting them by the dozen and using them to raise money for Australian Shepherd rescue… to date I have raised over $300 selling them at pet rescue events at $5 each!
not really important for this project, but 6.5-8/stitches per inch will work.
