I designed a market bag to get us a little sunshine to carry us through the coming winter.

There is a picture tutorial to walk you through making foundation single crochet handles. If you don't need the tutorial to do the handles there's a link to download just the written pattern.

That's what I thought!

At the bottom of the bag, before you start working up the sides is this lovely little sunshine shape. Nice lil secret when you carry your groceries or whatever in the snow. :)

That's lovely & bright & sunny, just like our weather here now, lovely 26 degrees, & warm as toast in the garden.
Thanks for the link. The bag looks nice & stong, not wimpy
like some bags are, so thanks again.

Very nice. Thank you for the link. :thumbup: I googled the Bernat Handycrafter yarn. Is it the number 5 cotton ball? The pattern doesn't really specify.

Looks like this.

It used to say "Big Ball" on the label. I'm still in the habit of calling it "Big Ball".

In the pattern I say it calls for...

Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter
I used just under half of the “Big Ball” Approx. 180g

It's a 400g ball of yarn.

Thank you. Now I'll be able to figure out which yarn I need to order. :thumbup:
