More and more countries ban the use of plastic bags. Why not make your own market bag and impress your fellow customers at the store with a handmade one?

The bag is made out of cotton. It looks quite small when it is unstretched, but stretches quite a lot and provides space for many items. The stitch pattern incorporates some twisted stitches, yarn overs and basic lace stitches. It is both written and charted. A crochet edge along the handles makes them more sturdy.
You can use 2 colors, you can use only 1, you can use sport weight cotton or aran weight cotton, or just use any cotton that you like. Options for different yarns are in the pattern.

What skills are you going to need and what will you get

Difficulty Level: Intermediate (knitting in the round on circular needles, yarn overs, increases, decreases, double decreases, twisted stitches, varying stitch counts, picking up stitches, kitchener grafting). You need to know how to work basic crochet stitches.

  • k: knit
  • p: purl
  • k tbl: knit through the back loop
  • inc8: increase 8: [knit 1, (yarn over, knit 1) x4], all into the same stitch
  • skp: slip 1 stitch, knit 1 stitch, pass slipped stitch over the knit stitch (1 stitch decreased)
  • k2tog: knit 2 stitches together (1 stitch decreased)
  • sk2p: slip 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over (2 stitches decreased)
  • garter stitch: when working in rows: knit all rows; when working in rounds: knit 1 round, purl 1 round.

Gauge: Sport weight: 20 stitches/40 rows in pattern = 10cm/4in.
Aran: 14 stitches/22 rows. (Gauge is not essential, as this is nothing that needs to fit you).

Size information

60cm/24in circumference unstretched (stretches to twice the size when filled), 35cm/14in in height. Each handle is 40cm/16in in length.

What material will you need
