Pattern
This playful pattern is worked in a combination of classic stockinette and a fun mesh stitch. With optional eyelets at the lower corners, you can choose to attach the drawstring I-cords to create a backpack or eliminate them to make a simple drawstring shoulder bag.

Yarn
HiKoo’s Popcycle - Sport - 50% Bamboo, 50% Polyester from recycled plastic bottles

Popcycle is an eco-yarn. It is exceptionally soft with a wonderful hand, yet cool and extremely strong. It looks beautiful due to a subtle tweed effect that is the result of each fiber taking the color differently when dyed. But the best part is there are 2 plastic bottles in each hank of yarn. A study in 2016 showed that Americans consumed 50 billion plastic bottles and only recycled 23%. Just one million plastic bottles recycled saves 250 barrels of oil and eliminates 180 metric tons of CO2 emissions from being released into the atmosphere. So, knitting with this sturdy, soft, cool, beautiful fingering weight yarn feels good in more ways than one.

The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.

Testimonials

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
