From the talented designer Emily Kintigh of Knit Picks design team. This Market Knitted Bag is a fashionable and functional bag that you will love.

Furthermore, this project is available in 14 inches wide by 15 inches tall by 4 inches; 24 inches for the handle. That’s approximately 36 cm wide by 38 cm tall by 10.16; 61 cm for the handle if you prefer to use the metric system.

Working on this pattern, you will need Dishie Yarn, a worsted weight yarn spun from 100% cotton fibers that provide tight spin and high absorbency. This is easy to knit and quite durable, perfect for hardwearing projects of yours. This is perfect for any wearables and afghan projects.

Moreover, you will need two US size 7 DPN’s or circular knitting needles. That’s approximately 4.5 mm if you prefer to use the metric system.

In addition, you will be doing the yarnover increase and k2tog decrease when working on this project. The yarnover increase is a standalone increase that neither slants to the left nor the right.

We have an illustrated tutorial for the YO if you want to learn it. You can find the tutorial here: Learn the Open Yarnover Increase (YO).

Finally, the k2tog is a basic right slanting decrease that is pretty common throughout knitting patterns. It stands for knitting two stitches together. We also have an illustrated tutorial for this technique. You can find it here: Basic Right Slanting Decrease (K2tog).
