I always try to take a spare bag with me whenever going out, you never know what you might find at the market… This little market bag folds up neatly into the lemon-colour corner and takes the same amount of room as a lemon in the handbag - a much more environmentally friendly alternative to anything plastic!

Cotton yarn works up into a durable and strong net, so the bag should last for years to come. When made in DMC Natura Just Cotton folded bag is about the size of a lemon, unfolded 28cm by 34cm when flat.

The pattern is written in English in US or UK Crochet Terms - both pdf files are included in the listing. There are detailed charts and step-by-step photos to help along the way.
