This pattern is available for free.

When creating this pattern, my wish list included something very very light weight so I wasn’t adding to my bottom line at the cash register, and handles to tie the top closed so the produce doesn’t spill out of the bag. I also wanted them to be stretchy and expandable so I could put in just a few tomatoes or few pounds if I wanted. After much trial and error – I believe these little bags fit the bill! They weigh only about 1/2 of an ounce. I carry several with my other reusable bags.

If you want to knit up a supply of your own, you’ll need:

fingering weight cotton yarn or crochet cotton thread in size 10
size US 8 (5mm), and US 3 (3mm) circular needles. Use ones with a nice long cable and if you haven’t already, go ahead and teach yourself the MAGIC LOOP method to knit these. You can thank me later.
