Crochet Market Bag in Cotton Yarn
For the winter holidays I had plans to make a shawl for summer in cotton yarn. But I had a request from a family member to crochet a market bag for carrying groceries. So the cotton yarn was used for a market bag instead and turned out very well: It is robust and sturdy and only has minimal stretch to it, since I worked the yarn double stranded. A perfect robust bag for shopping.
Pattern Net Shopping Bag by Sys Fredens in the book Contemporary Crochet: 37 European Designs. The pattern is a written only pattern with no charts. I crocheted the straps somewhat thicker than mentioned in the pattern. The bottom is a circle followed by double crochets in the round. A simple, but pretty effective pattern when crocheted with double stranded yarn.
