This is a modification to the original Weightless Produce Bag, which has become pretty popular. Knitters are saving the world!

After personally knitting several dozen of these handy little bags, (for gifting, trading and for teaching purposes), and reading the critiques and modifications of the Ravelry projects – (yes – all 600+ of them!), I’ve incorporated several improvements to the original pattern: 1.) a circular cast on to avoid seaming the bottom, 2.) longer handles and 3.) an enlarged bag opening. Thank you for the helpful suggestions, knitters!

You’ll Need:
fingering weight cotton yarn or crochet cotton thread (size 10 or thicker) - 80 to 100 yards per bag

size US 8 (5mm), and US 3 (3mm) circular needles Use ones with a nice long cable and if you haven’t already, go ahead and teach yourself the MAGIC LOOP method to knit these.

A size H crochet hook

4 - size 8 double pointed needles

Tapestry Needle to weave in ends
