The inspiration for this Market Bag came from the (now defunct) Ravelry Designer’s Challenge with the theme of “spring awakening”.

The bag starts with a pinhole cast on. Increases are worked into a leaf lace pattern to form the base of the bag. The leaf lace transitions to a lace mesh, and finishes with a garter stitch edging. A twisted cord allows for easy carrying and helps to keep the bag tied shut!
The sample was knit in FibraNatura Good Earth Solids, a worsted/aran blend of 53% cotton and 47% flax. The flax content makes the yarn quite durable, so if substituting yarns, I’d suggest a cotton/flax or cotton/hemp blend.
This pattern has written instructions, and the stitch pattern is both written and charted. This pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software. This option includes only the written instruction.
