I think this bag is more than a medium sized market bag. This beautiful Manhattan crochet tote can stash a lot. I am a shopaholic and I think I would have trouble filling this up. I love the design but am a little shy with the color. I know I could not keep this neutral colored bag clean for long.

Who among you is brave enough to carry a tote or any bag for that matter in a shade like this? Well, I would never because before the day was out it would be smeared with something. The crochet design is pretty but I would need it in a darker color. I thought when the kids were out of the house I could have nice things. I was blaming the wrong person.

This is such a simple looking bag, but the tassel and the way the stitches are placed makes it stand out. It is much larger than it appears to be in the image on this page. I was surprised that such a large hook made stitches that looked so tight. The lack of some of the punctuation and clearly defined sections makes the pattern a bit confusing at first glance, but it is easy enough to figure out.

This is one stylish bag! I love the pattern and that it is designated "easy" so I can the go of it! It also looks very strong so it'll probably last forever. I've already thought of several things I can put within it like library books, farmer market fruits and veggies and in-progress yarn projects. If I made several in different colors I could use them for my various meetings I attend...that way I can always have a color coded one ready to go swinging out the door!

What a wonderful, modern tote for a city girl on the go. Somehow, she always manages to capture a feeling with her work. It is almost as if she comes up with a scenario and then creates a project to play off that scenario. Make up more than one of these for every day use, and choose several different colors. I like the idea of color blocking this gray with a deep orchid or pink for a vibrant spring/summer bag.

I was a little surprised to see this project uses acrylic rather than cotton yarn, but Im not sure bulky cotton yarn exists anyway. I thought about what other cording might be used instead, but in the end, the bulky yarn seems to be best option. Ive worked the Waistcoat/Center Single Crochet before, and it can be tricky to find the exact spot to work the stitch. Watch the excellent video at MooglyBlog.

Where the heck is this "save pattern" button? I've been looking for it for 3 days now.

The link is called click here for crochet pattern and it is right above the banner that labels this pattern as Easy. Click it and it takes you to this site http// == crochet-pattern/ where you can find the pattern.

Love this pattern!! It's very straight forward, but as stated in the pattern notes, it would behoove you to read through and make sure you're clear on every stitch and placement before you actually begin. It's such a versatile pattern and once you get the repetition of the pattern in your mind, it works up SOOO quickly that I'm almost positive that your hands will do all the work so that your brain can move on to figuring out what to fill your new tote with! Lol BTW, if you used a smaller hook and thinner yarn, how cute would this be as a picnic wine holder/ wine gift bag?!?

This looks like such a great carry-all bag, and it's easy to work up! I can't wait to get started.
