This pattern shows you how to knit an airy market tote bag using cotton clothesline rope. It tells you the required materials, a beginner friendly tutorial for knitting in the round and how dye the rope a different color if you like. There are also instructions for adding braided handles.
This lightweight bag is perfect for taking to the beach or an outdoor market. And the best part - it's reversible!
Size: The finished bag measures approximately 12 inches wide and 15 inches tall, and it's stretchy.
The pattern comes as a PDF file, which should become available to download as soon as your payment clears.
This is not the actual tote bag! If you are interested in purchasing a finished bag, please message me for a custom order.
Difficulty: Easy and beginner-friendly. It is helpful if you already know how to make a knit stitch, but not required.
Cost: You will need two 100-yard hanks of 3/16-inch cotton clothesline rope (about $8 each) and a set of size 50/25 mm circular knitting needles (about $10 for a plastic set).
