Quick & Easy Knitted Gift Bags

The countdown to Christmas has begun in my craftroom.  :)  

I love giving gifts ~ and I think even small gifts can be presented in a fun way !

These cute gift bags are knitted with 2 DK yarns knitted together - so they are quick to make. 


Quick and Easy Knitted Gift Bags



Any 2 DK yarns, knitted together ~ (sparkly yarn is fun ! – I used King Cole Glitz for some)

5.5mm needles

Ribbon – optional



Using 2 strands of DK and 5.5mm needles cast on 23sts

Work in stocking stitch – I do it this way –

Row 1:    S1, knit to end of row

Row 2:    S1, purl to last st, k1


Repeat these 2 rows until work measures 6½” (16.5cm) for a Hand Crème, or Cocktail Can (250ml) like Pimm’s – other brands are available of course!

Repeat these 2 rows until work measures 8½” (21.5cm) for a Tube of Sweets - After Eight Mints, Rolo, Fruit Pastilles, Smarties, Chocolate buttons, etc or a mini bottle of wine (18.7cl)

Repeat these 2 rows until work measures 9” (23cm) for an Mini Prosecco Bottle (20cl)


Next Row (eyelet row):   S1, * yon, k2tog, repeat from * to end

Next Row:   S1, purl to last st, k1

Next Row:   S1, knit to end of row

Next Row:   S1, purl to last st, k1

Next Row:   S1, knit to end of row

Cast off knitwise            


Fold in half lengthwise and join the bottom seam

Join the side seam

Darn away ends

Thread a pretty ribbon through the eyelet holes and tie in a bow, or make a crochet chain of around 16" in length


You can fill these easy to knit gift bags with all sorts of little gifts – simply adjust the length to suit.

Have Fun !
