Free Knitting Pattern for Yoga Mat Strap

Yoga Mat Strap

Gina Michele wanted a cute carrier for her yoga mat but didn’t want the hassle of trying to roll her mat up tightly enough to fit in a tube. She devised this strap with loops that’s perfect for carrying her mat. I can think of a lot of other purposes for this strap. I even wonder if you could use it as a yoga strap if the cotton isn’t too stretchy. Knit in garter stitch.

Terry Matz

meTerry is a knitting late-bloomer, learning to knit as an adult from Internet tutorials, because she wanted a craft that was useful, fun, and portable. Knitting hats for cancer patients inspired her to design her own patterns—available for free at her blog, Terry met her husband Ken at a science fiction convention and moved to the Kansas City area to be with him more than 30 years ago. Terry supports her yarn stash by creating websites and other digital media. Terry firmly believes in Knitting in Public—it's a great conversation starter!
