Now in two sizes! 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 basketweave pattern is created with a slip-stitch mosaic stitch, and the top edge and handles are double thick for a professional, finished edge.
Suitable for advanced beginner knitters that can cast on and knit and purl. If you don't already know, you will learn 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.
Pattern is available on Ravelry for $4.95. You can purchase yourself or we can help you here.
HOMEWORK: Cast on and knit the bottom of the bag. We will start the first class with picking up the stitches for the main part of the bag.
