Enjoy filling your bag at the market or grocery store and watch as it stretches to fit your purchases. Knit in the round with two strands held together, the seed stitch bottom is bordered by garter ridges. The body continues in an open pattern. A practical side pocket provides storage for your own plastic bags with access from top and bottom. Add a wide shoulder strap, then finish it off with an I-cord drawstring.
