This was a fun little knit.  I did make some changes to it though.  I used Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton to knit it and I added more garter stitch and added a row of yo's so that I can run a ribbon through to close it up.  Mine seems a little shorter that the one on the pattern, but I also haven't loaded up the bag yet, so I'm guessing it will stretch out some.

cute!  i like the color of yours Cheesy 

i was looking at knitting one of these to help me carry groceries from my car to my apt.  i'm a little worried about whether or not the strap would be too painful on your shoulder if you were carrying heavier items.  it looks a little painful on the girl in the photo, but that could just be my imagination hehe Smiley  you've inspired me!

Oooh I think I'm going to make one too! I like to go to the Farmer's Market every weekend, and it would be nice to have a market bag! Plus, it's perfect because last summer I bought a bunch of Cotton Fleece on sale, and I haven't really had anything to knit with it.

Do you actually need a US15 circ? Because I don't have one, and I'm not-very-gainfully unemployed right now. Would I be able to make this without getting new needles?

Wow!  That must be a quick knit!  I just saw that pattern a few days ago.  I like the color you chose.

I have been wanting to knit something like this for a while.  You did a great job!

You don't need us15 circs, just the us10s.  You knit the two pieces on the 15s, seam them togeather, then pic up stitches all the way around for the size 10 garter stich part.

Also, I now have a slightly less fuzzy picture that has stuff in the bag:

And it stretches quite a bit.

Neat, thanks!

I'm trying to work on it now, but I always forget how bad I am at lace. I think it's because I just can't seem to wrap my head around it, but it never comes out. I've cast on and ripped apart three times already! I'm on my fourth try and I just can't seem to get past row 2!! Argh!

Any hints?

It's the same pattern just offset by one stitch, so if you can get the hang of the basic stitch pattern, it'll come to you.  Also, the yo that you drop is the one that isn't trapped by the passed stitch.  I'm actually now working on one in the round and it seems to go even easier that way.  Just CO 89 stitches, follow the directions just like you were doing one side, only longer.  On row 2, K1, *drop 1, K2* and on row 4, K2 *drop 1, K2*.

I hope that makes sense.

Ooooh that does help! I'm knitting it flat, because I don't have size 15 circs/DPNs. But that dropping the YO was I think what was really getting me confused. Thank you!
