A bit different in a shopping bag pattern, but people tell us they love it! This pattern works up easy and fast. The open weave stitch is simple to follow, and allows for a bit of stretch to get all your shopping items in it. Finished size is 12 by 12, but as we said, this will stretch to accommodate many items. Uses cotton crochet thread, 16 inch circular needle, US # 9. These are good bazaar sellers, and knit up lots as your friends will want one too!
