Knit your own Crossed Loop Market Bag using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
Make a colorful string bag for your next shopping trip. Crossed Loop Market Bag is a great bag to take to the beach or poolside, too!
This bag scrunches down to next to nothing until needed; then expands to accommodate more fiber stash purchases or whatever! The knitting goes quickly because the main pattern stitch is an elongated twisted stitch 2-rows high.
2 sizes -- Little Shopper 20" opening and Big Shopper 30" opening. String or firm cotton thread, US 3 or 4 / 3.25 or 3.5 mm needles suggested. Shown in handspun cotton. Written stitch instructions.
