This Afternoon Market Bag is named for how quick and simple it is to work up. Using a very simple pattern repeat, this market bag works up in an afternoon (or two!).

This bag is very beginner friendly.

This bag has a mesh structure for the body of the bag and a closed bottom to make sure that none of your items fall out but to give you a little stretch for more farmers market vegetables, more yarn or oddly shaped items.

Suggested Yarn: Caron Cotton Cake

Although you can use any yarn weight and type you prefer, however, it may change your size depending on the weight.

Yardage is approximate and you may need more or less depending on your yarn weight and tension.

The finished bag has the following dimensions, per this pattern and my gauge/tension.

Body Length: Approximately 13 inches
Body Width: Approximately 11 inches
Handle Length (from body of bag to top of shoulder): Approximately 13.5 inches
Handle Length (measuring entire handle as if it were flat): Approximately 32 inches.

Hook: 5 MM (or whichever corresponds with your yarn)
