The pattern includes two sizes to choose from, both felt up into smooth, sturdy containers, perfect for gathering veggies from the garden or market. If you leave them unattended, they also make a lovely cat bed.

They’re knit modularly for extra strength when carrying large, photogenic cabbages. This is also what ensures they sit perfectly flat for easy loading and unloading. A strong, comfy handle makes for easy carrying.
