I can't open this pattern. I do have adobe reader and still have a blank page.

When I try to view the instructions I only get it in code. How can I get this pattern?

I made one of these and took it to my exercise class to show a friend. One of the gals there saw it and asked me to make 3 for her so she could give them as Christmas gifts. I wish I could see the spot where you go from one row to another. Mine had a slanted sort of seam and the top edge seemed not quite right. But it's still a hit. Will make more and donate them to the elementary school's holiday bazaar.

I have made several of these in various colors and I have gotten so many comments on them. They work up so fast and easy and you can modify them to your liking. Great pattern even for beginners. I like a quick project and this is one of my favs. Thank you

For nhlulu: You need to have Adobe Acrobat installed in order to download this pattern. Once you have it installed, it'll open right up. it's a 1 page pattern.

The link doesn't work. So, unless I enlarge the pic and take the pattern right off the tote, it doesn't do much good!

If you don't have any extra thread, but have a lot of left over plastic grocery sacks. Cut off the bottom. Leave the sides intact. Cut the bag into 1" strips. Mix &/or match colors. Using any pattern use the strips to crochet the tote, leave the ends on the outside for "decoration" or put inside for a cleaner look. The work great. Have made bottle totes for walkers with these. AND they are stronger than the original bag.
