There are always things I should be doing, and personal projects that sneak their way into
the mix... this one is the latter. A String Bag or Shopper or whatever you want to call it. I've
seen images of this pattern floating around Pinterest for a while and managed to trace back
to the pattern. If you want to have a go yourself, the pattern can be found here.
For mine, I altered the pattern slightly. I used a 4 ply Panda crochet cotton in green, with a
2mm crochet hook because I wanted it to be a bit tighter and stronger. Because of this and
how it alters the gauge, I had to adjust the pattern by doubling all the stitch counts etc. In
one part (the panel around the base plate) I thought it didn't look quite right so I trebled it...
it's made it a bit baggy at the base but maybe that's a good thing because it'll hold more ;)
Anyway, this is it and I'm looking forward to taking it out on a test run when I do some
grocery shopping this afternoon! Hope you have fun making yours :)
