This crochet market bag has scored the name Wildcard in reference to tennis. Quite simply, the bobbles and mesh sections are reminiscent of tennis balls and netting!

The bag is constructed by making a square of mesh and bobble stripes. Stitches are then worked around the outside of the square to gather it into a bag shape, complete with straps.

Has both US & UK terminology.
