French Market Bag Free Knitting Pattern.
“This felted bag was inspired by one that my friend Sharon always totes her knitting in and the woven baskets commonly seen in French markets. I bought a few skeins of Cold Harbour Aran weight yarn during a visit to the mill — it’s actually a working wool museum — early this year and created this shallow basket bag.
The bag has a square base and is knitted in the round. The handles are grafted together using the Kitchener stitch. Instructions have been included also for knitting this without double-pointed needles as many knitters have often equated using double-pointed needles to wrestling with a porcupine.”
