N.M.P.B. means No More Plastic Bags!
Born of the frustration I have regarding the quantity of plastic bags I tend to accrue, I designed these bags to be small produce-centric market bags. Pretty and practical I use them everywhere I can, and feel pretty good about the number of plastic bags I have NOT used. I have collected all my options in one place and created a booklet with 40 possible configurations so you can create something you love and will love using!
This pattern includes: 4 brim options, 5 mesh patterns, 2 base options and 2 sizes!
Gauge: Each mesh pattern is slightly different, gauge isn’t strictly important here, but if you use smaller needles you may end up using more yarn and your finished bag will weigh a little more. It will help to have a scale to pre-weigh your yarn, this way you can keep track of the weight of your FO.
Yarn Needs: 1-2 ounces of fingering weight washable yarn, superwash sock yarn will work, fingering weight cotton, linen or hemp is recommended. My standard size samples weigh an average of .75 oz and the large ones are around 1.3 oz. You can make a standard sized one with about quarter of a skein of sock yarn!
Notions: tapestry needle for weaving in ends. Optional items: waste yarn for I-cord drawstring and pass-through handle; for buttonhole handle: crochet hook (size F or similar) and dpn one or two sizes smaller than the needle you are using for the brim.
After purchasing, you will have the option of two pdfs. They are identical, but one is optimized for tablet/digital use and the other will print nicely into booklet form!
