PDF Crochet Pattern for a Shopping Bag


Now that the 5p charge for carrier bags has arrived it gives you the perfect excuse to hook up a shopping bag! You get all the fun of making it AND it comes in really useful for those impromptu shopping trips. If you get really hooked you can make them up as Christmas presents for friends. Maybe you can make a few in different colours. Of course they don’t even have to be shopping bags. You can keep all sorts of things in them – the choice is yours!

This one is made using 2 x 50g balls (230 metres in total) of Organic Cotton in a Double Knit weight and a 4mm hook. I’ve not included tension or sizes as it’s quite stretchy but the photo shows it holding 3 x 100g balls of Super Chunky yarn so it has plenty of room in it.

Happy shopping!
