Maui County was one of the first counties in the United States to ban plastic bags for use at check out in stores. I have designed this bag to be roomy and is great for using as a shopping bag. It’s a great way to say “No Thank You” to the plastic bag at check out and look great while you’re at it. Cotton is suggested however I did use Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn and it made a nice large bag that is quite sturdy. This is the grey bag picture above.
The pattern is a fun and creative way if you’re new to the corner to corner technique and would like a functional end product. I have written out row by row and included some helpful photos to walk you through the pattern. Pictured to the right is Divya @stringtierey final bag and the colors she used worked out so beautifully.
I hope you have fun making and using this pattern. It’s been one of the most used patterns for me personally. I have made three and love taking them with me to any store, the library and the farmers market.
