If you would like to read my thoughts on bags go to the Bags, Bags, and More Bags post.
I like crocheting bags far too much and now have far too many. Luckily it means I am never short of a bag when I have some home-grown produce to give away. This market bag will have everyone asking you where you got it from. Also, a great way to show off your love of science! It will be great in any colour combination to suit your mood.
Difficulty and Terminology: This is an easy pattern and uses US terminology.

The Bag: Each round is joined with a slipstitch. Each square represents two stitches either *dc, ch1* or *dc, dc*, depending on the colour of the square.
