This practical market bag is perfect for a quick trip to the grocery, or for toting along your current knitting project! Knit with two colors of Queensland Cairns, a sturdy cotton/acrylic blend – the unique two-colored chain construction yields fabulous, colorful results! Starting with a square bottom knit flat, stitches are picked up along all edges to knit the body of the bag in the round. The basket weave pattern is created with a slip-stitch mosaic stitch, and the top edge and handles are double thick for a professional, finished edge.
Pattern is suitable for knitters that are comfortable knitting in the round, picking up stitches, and reading a pattern. I highly recommend using the suggested yarn to achieve the color and pattern of the sample shown.
