My first bag

This bag took only about 3 days from start to finish, doing bits here and there, so it was a nice quick project, and  quite easy too!

It's made with Stylecraft chunky yarn, on size 5 hook and is mainly treble crochet.  I wasn't sure whether it would stretch once it was full of items, but as you can see, even with a loaf of bread and a few tins in, it holds its shape really well.

If you want to have a go, then here is the pattern I used:  (it's a US pattern, so for double crochet, read treble crochet)



Cheesy picture - imagine I've just arrived home from the market!


  1. Thank you Catherine - I now use it to store some of my yarn stash! It holds loads!
