This is my second knit grocery bag. I decided to make two handles to more evenly distribute the stress, since the white yarn is a little thin. I think the mesh pattern for this bag (YO, k2tog for one row; k next row) creates a strong netting that works well with this yarn.


Let me tell you, the cashiers and baggers in LA love my rainbow grocery bags. Ive gotten most compliments from teenage boys. They just love the knitting, and the colors. LOVE IT.

Very cool! I crocheted a couple bags for myself. The cashiers at my grocery store have told me they prefer it when customers bring in their own bags, because reusable bags are typically bigger and stronger than plastic bags.

Thanks everybody! I've been very happy using it, and if anyone is thinking about making one it was pretty easy.
