What you need to know

Learn to change colour in knitting with Laura Cruickshank's easy stripe peg bag pattern

Stop those pegs from wandering by storing them in this stylish little pocket. Just slip in a child’s plastic hanger and it’s ready to go. This simple peg bag uses DK yarn from your stash in two colours. Less than 25g of each is required. Instead of cutting and rejoining the yarn each time, carry the colour not in use up the side of the work until you need it. This reduces the number of ends you'll need to sew in - perfect!
