Sock Candy Bag

The design for this elegant drawstring bag was inspired by a sample in Gayle Rohem's class on stitches from Japanese designs.

The bottom of the bag is worked in linen stitch to create a firm base and then stitches are picked up and worked in the round using a Japanese lace pattern to create an expandable body.  The top is worked in stockinette stitch for stability and finished off with a picot edge.  Instructions for creating the drawstring ties are included.
