I made this bag, but out of the bambbo yarn, and it is super easy and came out very nicely! Love It! Though the bamboo stretches a bit! LOL!

Just finished this and enjoyed the project very much. I have not crocheted in a while and was still able to follow the directions easily with the exception of those for Rows 34-45 of the handle which end by saying "9 sts". That is incorrect. The 9 stitches starts in the next set of rows (Rows 46-56) which is the narrower part of the handle. But if you just ignore that, it is all smooth sailing. Mine looks the same as the picture except for the size. Mine is a good bit larger. I used the specified hook and yarn, counted my stitches, and though I crochet loosely, I can't see it making that much difference. On the plus side, however, I should be able to get lots of produce in there at the Farmer's Market. Thanks for such a neat pattern.

Love this pattern. I made this in 2 days. I added some edging and a flower. I will use this for summer for everyday use. :)

Easy pattern, but they came out HUGE!!! I used scrap yarn. I added a picot edging around handles, and used a few drop stitches to give a bit of texture to the bag. I have three request from my nieces, but I'am going to try and downsize this pattern (p.s. I found the perfect sized bag for my nieces the "Go Lightly bag with again a few adjustments) I made one for my Mother and faternal twin sister (see photo)

This bag is amazing :) follow the instructions to a T and you'll get a perfect bag, but the only thing I did differently is add 5 more rows to each side of the strap (so I went to 61 rows on each side instead of 56)
You'll need to put some heavy objects in the bag and weigh it down to get a nice shape at first. I made this bag in one day, and it's absolutely PERFECT! :)

i made a bag similar to this one many years ago for my sister. she still uses it and recently when i saw her, she had it with her. i used two skeins of cotton ease together and then i lined it with muslin; i think that helped keep it's shape.

I loved making this bag. It was very simple to do. However, I have found that it stretches a lot. I don't know if it is because I used the cotton yarn or not. I will try to make it again, but I will try the acrylic.
