Made mine a bit different..I worked 6 rows knit between 4 rows of pattern. Also made the handles knit (double strand)
Bag was sturdier, will be making more of these for gifts!

I hang mine on the doorknob of the pantry and put recyclables in it. It stretches to hold so much, but then firms up again when it's washed.

Fairly easy pattern once you get the hang of things. Quick too. I made mine a couple of inches shorter, but it looks great and should work well for my needs.

I just finished making this, though I think I went a little overboard and made it too long! But it's pretty nice looking, and didn't take very long to finish. I almost didn't put the borders on, because I had run out of yarn and didn't want to buy another ball, but I'm happy I did. I think it looks much better, and I feel like the handle will be sturdier. The cotton yarn I used for it, called Afrika, from the brand Reginella (I know, it's not Lion, but I'm in Chile and my options are limited to what's available here), didn't have lengths listed, just that the skeins were approximately 100 grams each, and I ended up using about 4 1/3. It was a quick and easy project, and I'm going to join the others here by saying I'm going to make a couple more to have on hand for gifts!

Looks like a great bag pattern, have printed it and will add to my pattern notebook. . .however, I have been looking for an easy openwork pattern for a valance/window topper and this might just be it!!
Thanks Lion Brand! :)

I love this bag and pattern! I made flash cards numbered 1-4 to remember what row I'm on and when finishing the handles I picked up 65 stitches on each side vs the 100 it says in the pattern since so many people said it stretched too much. I use mine for the beach and it is perfect!

Used 3 different colors of recycled cotton: pink, yellow, green in a striped pattern with a strand of Sock-Ease in cotton candy throughout. Very springy/summery looking. I get lots of compliments. I love Lion Brand yarn and the free patterns. Thanks Lion brand.

This is a great bag but i always seem to have trouble remembering where i am when i set it down. I am sure its quite simple...but difficult in the wrong hands.

Easy pattern to remember. I took this on vacation to work on and was easy to pick up and set down. Very sturdy.
