Don't go to farmers markets without a tote of your own - make sure to bring along the 1 Skein Farmer's Market Bag. In the designer's own words, "this slouchy farmer’s market bag is perfect for shopping and hauling all kinds of goodies! It only uses one skein of yarn and can be used countless times instead of those icky plastic bags that really hurt our planet. I recommend using a cotton yarn for durability but photographed is an acrylic (I Love This Yarn in Pasha). Hope you guys enjoy this one, don’t forget to post as a project so I can see your beautiful bags!"

I do recommend this,because we use those cloth bags,all the time,for shopping,and they easily get DIRTY,or just "bacteria-from-food"-dirty,and you don't want to poison your food in them--unhealthy!!You gotta clean em alla the time.

round 10 skip 2 stitches, is that 1,,2 or 1,,,2, also 1 skein what weight/meterage is that? thankyou

It seems the V stitch fits between the V stiches of the row before in the picture, that seems to mean that 3 stiches are missed before going through the 4th or should I not chain 1 before or after the V stitch. Thankyou crochet newbee.

I tried to make this bag several times. I had others read the pattern as well. I've been crocheting for 48 years. I've had a few patterns that got the best of me. This one did.

I have the fortune to live within walking distance of the local farmers market and I always have an issue bringing the produce I purchase home or limit myself to what I purchase because I have to consider how to bring it home. Now I can make a couple of these 1 skein bag and have them hanging on the door when I head out. Now I will not have to worry about those yucky plastic bags.

This is a great looking bag. I love the length of the strap and I hope that it does not stretch out of shape with use. I hope that by crocheting the short way verses the length of the strap that will limit stretch. Looking at the bottom of the bag, it really looks roomy.

Looking ahead to eventual warmer weather in a few months time, wouldn't it be a great idea to make a bunch of these for all your friends and give as a gift? To me, that is a brilliant idea. I Love This Cotton comes in an awesome array of solids and variegated types. I could choose several! I am saving this pattern for sure.

The magic circle is a great way to start a crochet piece that eliminates the hole in the center and brings the stitches tighter and closer together. I have been using it for a while on various projects. This is a very easy pattern to follow along to and it makes such a pretty market bag.

I am not sure what Ms. Kiser meant to refer to in her link to the "magic ring" this pattern refers to it may be that she has no knowledge of where the link leads. Always open to new crafting ideas, I clicked on it. Fair warning to others DON'T click on it! When I did, a virus called Virus-crash-e5bc2gh.tech shut down Chrome, locking it against closing, claiming my IP was being blocked because I was a Time Warner customer. My first move was to call my provider they talked me through a restart and clearing of Chrome's browsing history and firmly advised me (and now I advise all readers) NOT to call the 888 number the locking pop-up insisted I must call to undo the block. Often such aggressive invasions are after personal information like credit card numbers. So please beware!

That is a scam that has been around for a very long time. Eveyone should know by now not to fall for these things and to never call any number you are given online. Not sure what you are referring to about a link to the magic ring. It is no longer there now so it may have been removed, but the magic ring is one of the first things you learn when crocheting. Her site looks like it has the all clear now.

Not everyone knows, especially the elderly, so please do not make that assumption (I work in IT, I am well aware how many people do not know not to fall for those things) as for the magic ring, I've been crocheting for 45 years and I just learned about the magic ring 2 years ago. Again, don't make assumptions just to be snarky to people.
