Summer Market Tote

Lion Brand® Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Cotton Hemp

GAUGE:

11 1/2 dc = about 4 in. (10 cm).

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook - 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st.
2. Beginning with Rnd 2, work all dc's into the sps between sts instead of into the top of sts.

Summer Market Tote Reviewed by Beth Guidetti on 2012-03-15 ****
I used a J hook and recycled cotton in green and blue and it turned out absolutely lovely! A little small on the small side, but very cute! Fun and easy! For my next tote I'll use an even larger hook so that its more of a market bag size, the size described in the pattern.
