A foldable, rollable shopping or project bag with a reinforced rim and handles. Ideal for gradients, a single colour or as a stash buster in stripes. It works up well in 4ply cotton making it durable and washable. I used 135g of 4ply BWM cotton for the striped bag, about the same for the Ice Cotton Fine and approx 120g of Mississippi 3.

This bag is approx 33cm wide by 40cm deep but can easily be adjusted by adding on (or leaving off) a pattern repeat. The handle can also be lengthened with the addition of extra chain.

The rim and handles are reinforced by the use of a smaller hook.
