Market Bag Reviewed by Jesey on 2015-02-13 ****
I am in love with this pattern! It is fairly simple and easy to get the hang of. I made two in just as many days and I have people requesting them from me already. My only complaint is that one of the steps lists the number of stitches (when working on the handle) and I don't feel that it was accurate. Other than that everything worked well.

I have made about 8 of these bags. I too, had trouble with connecting the two sides of the handle at first. After fiddeling with it, I decided to make each side of the handel longer then the directions said. When both sides are done, I use a needle with a med/large eye and thread it with the same color yarn and sew the two sides together, going across both sides for extra strength. You can't really tell there is a seam there.

I made my first several of these nearly twenty years ago when I had to take the bus to the grocery store in college. I've lost track of how many I've made and gifted out over the years. I've made them with I, J, and K hooks. They have amazing strength and stretch and they're cotton so they can go straight into the washer and dryer without concern. Back then they were mostly for carrying veggies, meat and milk home. Now I find the larger ones can hold my sixty pound nephew. (Only for demonstration of bag strength I assure you!) And with the new anti-plastic bag laws, it looks like these gifts will be in high demand again. Thank you Lion Brand!!

Great bag! I didn't notice the note about stitching in the spaces until I was several rounds in, so I just finished the bag stitching in the DCs. I think it looks a little less open, which I like. Also, mine came out a little smaller than the pattern said, but I tend to crochet pretty tightly.
I used a CC for rounds 22-26 and for the finishing edge, then I embellished with a flower. I think it looks great! I will definitely be making this again.

This is a fun pattern. I make it in two colors by putting the other color in the middle. Everyone loves it. Great for gift.

I'm very new to crochet, and similar to other reviewers I found that the handles were difficult. I reworked many rows until it got close to the picture. It's hard to know when to crochet into the turning stitch and when not to. I used a fair amount of guesswork and was frustrated by my inability to understand the pattern.

My bag is not totally symmetrical but will be fine. I worked 2 rows of sc around at the end to achieve a finished appearance.

All in all, I'm happy with it. It will be a Mothers Day gift. The next one will, no doubt, be easier.

Lucky I had 3 balls of sunshine yarn. It took almost all of my third skein. Otherwise, easy to make.

Fast and easy to make. Good looking. I made two of these but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't finish the handles and edges without using part of a 3rd ball of yarn.

This is a great bag. I've made two so far, one in cotton and one acrylic, and have requests for more. Works up quickly and holds a lot of stuff. Love it!

Took me a couple of tries to work this out, but it is wonderful now that it's finished.
