I'll bet you didn't think that I had hemp in my stash! Actually, I bought a bag full of it at the swap meet a couple of years ago. It's more like string, but not very smooth. I doubled it to knit this bag. I used one pattern for the top, the body is the purse stitch (yarn over, purl 2 together), and the bottom I just knitted and decreased every other round. It came out ok, after all, it's only a bag. I have a lot of hemp left over, so I may make another one. It's strong and stretches a lot, very useful for going to the farmer's market!
