This knit bag is so cute and practical. It’s great for toting around groceries, gym gear, beach wear and more. It’s, lightweight, eco-friendly and a fun knit!
The market bag is knit flat in a DK weight yarn and then joined in the round to create the sides and top handles. It’s a unique construction that’s incredibly satisfying when it comes together.
This bag pattern is appropriate for those who are comfortable casting on, knitting, purling, casting off and knitting in the round. This is a medium difficulty project. It’s recommended to both adventurous beginners and seasoned knitters.
This bag is best knit with cotton, linen and hemp yarns. These fibres are hard-wearing with minimal stretch. The result is a sturdy bag that can hold a lot of weight without stretching out of shape.
