Crochet Heyday

It's been a little while since I picked up a crochet hook or knitting needles. I guess the warmer weather has driven me outdoors and away from my usual indoor projects.

I made for this market bag for Anna Bella two years ago at a time when I was focusing my attention on crocheting. Seeing how well it's held up, I'm feeling inspired to make more. Hers is made from an unbleached cotton, but I've made others using colored hemp twine which is extra sturdy. Because gauge is not really a concern with this pattern, it's easy to experiment with different materials and yarn weights... and since they roll up to nearly nothing, there's always room for one more bag.
