As we hear increasing reports of global warming, we realize our own stake and responsibility in cleaning up our act and preserving the earth that we all love living in. We're in this together. There are small, subtle ways we can reduce waste and promote an eco-friendly culture. Reducing our dependence on plastic bags, is an easy way to help save the environment. That's why this market bag is the perfectly versatile, stylish and convenient alternative to plastic. Tote it to the grocery store, while running errands. Make it your new lunch box. Or handbag.

A quick to knit market bag pattern that is written for 2 sizes, small and large. An easy 4-row lace pattern worked on larger needles makes the bag roomy.

This is about the pattern Market Bag(14213D) by Uma Padu made with dishie multi. I'm out of yarn about a third of the way up the second handle. Generally speaking, I knit pretty close to guage, so either the yardage was short in the skeins or it requires 3 skeins for the larger size bag. Luckily, I have been able to order another skein to finish the project, and am ordering more of 2 different colors because I want to make 3 bags. The jelly bean one I'm working on is very fun and will get lots of comments when it is in use.
