Just in time for all those wonderful summer farmers markets, I wanted a market bag that was mesh but had a more stable base, and I wanted it to be beautiful, so a mandala bottom is the key feature of this lovely bag. Made with your favorite cotton yarn (Bernat Softee Baby Cotton used in the pattern), the detail of the stitches are so beautifully defined. It works up so quickly, you’ll be making them in every color! And why stop with bags? Make a cute set of coasters by stopping at the indicated round of your mandala, or finish your mandala and stretch it to make a dream catcher. It’s a versatile pattern!

AND ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE PURCHASED VERSION (not on the free blog version) is a detailed STITCH CHART for this bag! The stitch chart lays the pattern out for you visually, giving you even better understanding of the pattern.
