pattern for a really simple but open net shopping bag?
You know what I mean? I want a cotton bag that will crumple up in the bottom of my regular handbag, then when I'm out buying junk I won't have to carry those horrible plastic bags around, I can scrunch the plastic bags or food or hair conditioner into the bag I pull out of my other bag and put over my shoulder.

Like those old time net bags, very open work but durable.

I checked all the patterns, French shopping bag, etc. on Knitting Pattern Central and they don't have a simple one. Very open netting. Should I just try to create my own? hmmmmmmmmm What do you think? Have you seen any patterns around like this?

Oh, I know, they used to be macrame bags didn't they?

Found it at Knitting Patterns Central.....named Turkish something or other, so you wouldnt have found it under "shopping" or "groceries" or "French" or "food" or "stuff it in my purse".

Glad to help!

DARN! i have this pattern in my bookmarks and I thought "OH I KNOWWWWW" until I say KK's greased lightning response i also have a printed pattern for a that has a similar look, but it's tying knots with a thousand pieces of string instead of knitting; I have my kids at school use this technique to tie beads around water bottles to make shekeres... oo but now maybe I can KNIT the beads around a water bottle for a shekere!! Fun!
