Market Square Bag Project Kit
This practical market bag is perfect for a quick trip to the grocery, or for toting along your current knitting project! Knit with two colors of Queensland Cairns, a sturdy cotton/acrylic blend – the unique two-colored chain construction yields fabulous, colorful results! Starting with a square bottom knit flat, stitches are picked up along all edges to knit the body of the bag in the round. The basketweave pattern is created with a slip-stitch mosaic stitch, and the top edge and handles are double thick for a professional, finished edge.
Project is suitable for knitters that are comfortable knitting in the round and reading a pattern. The techniques are easy, and fully explained in the written pattern. Kit includes two balls of Queensland Cairns (three balls for large size kit), plus a copy of the Market Square pattern. You will also need a 24" US size 7 needle (32" length if knitting the larger bag), stitch markers, and a darning needle, sold separately.
A print copy of the pattern is included as part of your kit. Would you like just the pattern, or prefer an electronic copy? Digital download copies of this design may be purchased separately.
Available in two sizes! The small bag (shown here in the Mountains colorway) measures 8" square on the bottom and 7" tall at the sides. The large bag (shown here in the Tundra colorway which is sold out) measures 10" square on the bottom and 10" tall at the sides.
