Notes

I’ve had these 4 skeins of pink Sea Song in stash forever, tried to use them for a couple different projects but it never worked out the way I wanted. Finally I think I’ll just use them to make a couple mesh market bags. If I don’t have enough, I’ll just pair it with another cotton yarn in stash to complete.

Mods:

  • I slipped the first st on either side working the bottom so when picking up stitches on the side, I could only pick up half of required sts. On the next plain row, I knitted each one of them front and back to reach the required number of sts.
  • I worked 6 plain rows around the bottom instead of 3 before starting the mesh pattern.
  • I switched to a white yarn on row 2 of the last repeat.
  • I worked 8 rows or ribbing instead of 6.
  • I made the handles about 100 ish rows (I think?!) before binding. 

Progress:
