Crossed Loop Market Bag
From the pattern description: Make a colorful string bag for your next eco-friendly shopping trip. A bag that scrunches down to next to nothing until needed; then expands to accommodate more fiber stash purchases or whatever. It’s a great bag to take to the beach or poolside, too!
The knitting goes quickly because the main pattern stitch is a nifty elongated twisted stitch that is at least double the height of a normal stitch1 You’ll also be guided step-by-step with skill-building instructions for making a self-joining tubular casing for the drawstring I-cord handles.
String or firm cotton thread, US 3 or 4 / 3.25 or 3.5 mm needles suggested. Shown in handspun cotton. Written stitch instructions.
