This Little Piggy Went to Market is a super quick, one skein market bag with a cleverly attached pouch that serves double duty; it contains the bag when you are not using it and acts as a hidden pouch inside the bag when it is open.

This Little Piggy Goes to Market is knit seamlessly from the bottom up.

This is a great little bag to keep stowed in your purse and car or fill it up with wine and flowers as a cute gift.

MEASUREMENTS
The pouch measures 5 inches/ 12 1/2 centimetres wide and 5 1/2 inches/ 13 centimetres high when closed with the bag inside of it. The bag measures 17 inches/ 43 centimetres long and 6 inches/ 15 centimetres wide when open, measured un-stretched.

The stitch pattern used creates a mesh fabric that is very stretchy; please keep this in mind when choosing yarn for this project. If you are using a fibre with a natural tendency to stretch such as acrylic or bamboo, you may consider working fewer pattern repeats in the body of the bag and shortening the handles to accommodate. Let your gauge swatch be your guide.
