Tropical Stripes Market Bag
"Whether you’re visiting a farmers market, or spending the day at the beach, take this cheerful bag with you! A solid, rectangular bottom and Jacob’s ladder reinforced corners make it sturdy enough for even those heavier veggies. It’s made with 2 varieties of Red Heart Super Saver yarn, which I received for free to use for this pattern. The linen stitch texture adds extra dimension to the subtle color changes of the Ombre yarn, and the tropical colors of the Stripes yarn really pop against the blue."
