FREE LOOM KNITTING PATTERN...
Six weeks ago, on Thanksgiving, I accidentally dropped a very heavy Christmas tree on my foot and ended up in the emergency room. My foot was so swollen that I couldn't stand anything near my foot. The doctors wanted me to keep ice on it but even that hurt. Since I was stuck on the couch anyway, I came up with the idea for a loom knit ice bag. I wanted it to sit flat and be soft and I added cables because it had to be cute, of course! It works great, I just stick a sandwich bag of ice inside and put it on the injury. I think it would be a really good gift bag or small evening purse. I hope you enjoy this pattern!
