This cotton bag was inspired by my shawl design, Road to Nowhere, which uses the same combination of stitches.

Road to Nowhere is a pretty bleak name, I wanted this pattern to represent the promise of a better future.

The pattern is written in UK terms.
The bag is made by making the bottom first and then working the two sides from the bottom piece.
See below for suggestions about sizing up.
Carry YB, YC & YD up the sides. Fasten off each row by putting the whole ball through the loop and pulling to close, this avoids having to cut and sew in ends.
