Market Bag

Lion Brand Recycled Cotton

GAUGE:

11 dc = 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Market Bag Reviewed by Kate Bombara on 2014-10-30 *****
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.
