I'm looking for a string shopping bag pattern to use for grocery shopping or just general shopping. I think I'd like it to have two handles on either side, or one sturdier one, on the short side. I don't want a really long handle-then again, surely that would be easy to adjust.

Anyone know of any? I've searched but I can't seem to find one. Thanks!!

Here is my favorite:

She did it using recycled plastic shopping bags, but I made it using Sugar and Cream (and I made it smaller too.). Check out this post on my blog for mine:

Good luck. I love mine!!

knit picks use to have a farmers market bag on their site but I don't see it anymore-- that is a cool pattern as well

Hi,
Classic Elite also has a pretty lace Market Bag Pattern here: http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/WebLetter/1/Issue1.php

you could probably also adapt this pattern from KnitPicks: http://www.knitpicks.com/Mary's+Summer+Bag+Large_PD50564221.html (http://www.knitpicks.com/Mary%27s+Summer+Bag+Large_PD50564221.html)

and Knitting Pattern Central has a section on "Bags, Totes, and Purses" that might be helpful: http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/bags_totes_purses.php

the "Saturday Market Bag" from Magknits is listed there.

I used this pattern. The bag is already done and seamed together. I need to sit down and figure out the applied I-cord now, so that I can use it!

Thanks, Katrina and dawnk! I printed off Elisa's nest tote-that is really cute! I like the lacy Market Bag too.

Now I have so many to choose from! :mrgreen:

There is also:
This one has 2 versions small and large. They are very pretty but don't look like a easy quick knit.

This one is nice. And it would be easy to add knitted handles instead of ribbon ones.
http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer07/PATTeverlasting.html
This is similar to the everlasting but the mesh is a little different and not as fine.

Thanks Sherri and Marilyn! I hope to make a bunch of these and give extra ones as gifts. These are some great patterns! I especially like the ones in the round-less finishing :teehee:
