Hexagon Market Bag

Lion Brand« Kitchen Cotton

GAUGE:

One Hexagon = about 6 in. (15 cm) across. 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:

3-dc Cl (3 double crochet cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), (yarn over, insert hook in same st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 2 times (4 loops rem on hook) yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

Hexagon Market Bag Reviewed by JoAnn Clark on 2013-11-24 *****
I made this bag for my 10 year old niece as a Christmas present and loved how it came out! The Kitchen Cotton was pretty easy to work with (though not as nice as Cotton Ease) and the bag came together much more quickly than I expected.

I worked her bag using pumpkin, snap pea, bubble gum, blueberry, and grape for the colors and it was bright and fun when finished. I would definitely make this one again!
