How to Make the Popsicle Tote Bag on your Addi King Knitting Machine

The Popsicle Tote Bag is quick and easy to make, made from four simple rectangles! This extra-large, double-thick bag is great for the beach or for carrying a large knitting or crochet project.

I used [easyazon_link identifier=”B0017342OY” locale=”US” tag=”yayforyarn-20″]Red Heart Super Saver[/easyazon_link] in four different colors to make flat tubes on the [easyazon_link identifier=”B004HS7T7S” locale=”US” tag=”yayforyarn-20″]Addi King Knitting Machine[/easyazon_link], then used a trim color yarn to crochet edgings around each, assemble the bag, and crochet the handles.  My finished bag measures 18″ wide by 18″ high.
