This listing is for a market shopping bag. Knit it out of organic cotton and it is the perfect reusable market bag.

I have modelled this shopping bag on the old string bag my grandmother used to have about 30 years ago. It is so much easier to carry heavy produce in than those awful plastic bags. The best part is I have reinforced the bottom to make it extra strong. It is not just a plain knit and I have used a pattern for strength as well as stretch.

The pattern is for a bag about 26x32cm (11x13") not including the handle but I have included intstructions on how to make it bigger or smaller. There is a great amount of stretch in it so it can carry a lot more than it looks like it can.

Make it a bit larger and it would be a great beach bag.

The pattern is very easy and only involves knit, casting on and casting off. It is knitted on 2 needles with 5ply (fingering weight) cotton

I do not allow the copying of my patterns of any type but I do allow the selling of the finished goods on Etsy or anywhere else.

Although every care has been made to type up my patterns correctly there may be a typo. If you find any or are having trouble with any part of the pattern please let me know. I am here to help.
