Going to the market




It is done.



This time I didn’t use colours too bright,


Can you guess?


A grocery bag! Big enough for going to the market without needing any plastic bags and small enough to put in your daily bag before you need it.

I made the pattern so that it is easy to adjust the height of the bag and to make the handles just as long or short as you would like them.


As you can see: the blue bag has an extra row of shells and a much longer strap.

Pattern is available in my Etsy-shop.


Groetjes, Dorien

When I popped by yesterday I wondered whether it was a's turned out beautifully. Your crochet is so even and your colours well chosen!

They're just lovely! I like it when you can make things that become useful and not just decorative (although this is a good thing too). I love the mushroom colour of the first bag - very earthy indeed! A fantastic pattern!
