'Market' Tote Bag Reviewed by Helen Rhodes on 2009-03-01 ****
The finished bag is smaller than the picture.

I added five or six more rows to the main body of the bag and then did a row of single crochet in between each decrease row for the handles, and did 15 9sc rows instead of 10. It made the bag the length as it appears on the photo above. I added a simple lining and a zip so the bag retaines its shape when you put things inside. Looks great! Excellent pattern.

This picture misrepresents the size of the actual bag. This bag is smaller than how it looks in this picture. Look at the picture of the Market bag, it is the actually size and same pattern, just different yarn.

The pattern was easy, even for a beginner,as I am one. Love the bag. Made them for presents for my friends so that they can all be green. Some friends have even asked for additional bags for the grocery store.

Love this bag! I used yarn that was a little too soft and flexible but it's still great! I carry my crochet projects to my crochet group in them. Also want to make this bag and felt it. It'll probably shrink down enough to be a great large purse.

I made this bag nine years ago when I was fifteen. I really love this purse. I lined it and put a zipper in. I also lengthened the handle by about ten rows each side.

The result: I still use this bag all of the time.

I knit this bag in cotton yarn and found it does stretch which is sometimes a good thing. I added a lining to the bag to prevent small items from poking through. The bag holds a lot when shopping. Knit up very quickly.

I have tried several patterns for shopping bags and have found this one to be the most useful in terms of ease of loading and flexibility in what it can hold. It is very easy to crochet as well.

Made this bag for my friend Karen. Bag was easy to make and worked up in no time.
I think next time i will use a heavier yarn so heavier items could be put in.
I prefer a bag with less holes,
Karen is pleased with it. She is not a knitter or crocheter and she appreciates any item of this sort.
I love this site. it has so much on it, and lots of tips and hints.

I have made about 9 or 10 in all different colors. Seems my daughter sees them and needs one in another color to match her stuff. She said, she puts her stuff for the beach in them. She also got 7 pairs of cowgirl boots in one. She's always telling me how great they are. I made myself one in variegated turqoises and everytime I use it everybody wants to know if I made it and that the colors are gorgeous! My daughter needs another one in one last color that she doesn't have. Now my bf's daughter says she would like one. I also have to say that we in Florida are finally starting to go green, these bags are a wonderful addition to your shopping trip!

'Market' Tote Bag Reviewed by Jean Tanner on 2008-07-18 ****
I made this in blue for my daughter's teacher as an end-of-the-year gift. She can use it to carry field trip supplies, but also take it to the beach. I also crochet tightly, so it turned out the perfect size for her.
