Who says reusable can’t be pretty? This bag is not only useful and environmentally friendly, but it will also give you the chance to show off some mad crochet lace skills! The pattern is deceptively simple to crochet; all the increases are worked into the first round of stitches, so there is no increasing or decreasing within the stitch pattern. The durable linen yarn is machine washable and dryable. It gets softer each time you wash it, making it the perfect strong yet low-maintenance choice for this bag. Use the bag to go to the market or the beach, or stow your yoga mat and water bottle for a trip to the gym; this bag will carry it all!
