Erin’s Bagstopper

There isn’t a whole lot to say about the Everlasting Bagstoppper that hasn’t already been said, whether it’s by me or someone else.


I use mine constantly and refer to it as my “Mary Poppins Bag” since it tends to just expand and expand until it holds everything I might want it to hold. Sister-in-law Erin sounded interested when I mentioned that little fact, so she got a Bagstopper for Christmas.

Somehow, I had no brown thread in my stash. How does this happen?

As always, the bag knit up quickly. I used Judy’s Magic Cast On to start the base, knit to 3.5”, picked up the sides and was off to the races. The pattern is dead easy, which makes it a great, functional gift.
