Another brilliant design by Bobbie Fitzgerald, this Marlene Market Bag is a stylish carry-all for your essentials. It’s soft and cottony, perfect for everyday use.

In addition, the pattern is easy to knit, great for advancing beginners to work on.

This pattern is available in one size and measures 15.5 inches high and wide not including the strap. That’s 39.5 cm in height and width if you prefer to use the metric system.

To make this knit bag, you will need Lion Brand Yarn’s Re-Up Yarn which is an eco-friendly yarn. Try this Re-Up Yarn for your next cotton project and help save the environment while you knit happily. Plus, it is cottony and soft, perfect for making shawls, blankets, and other accessories.

Furthermore, you will need US size 7 knitting needles. That’s 4.5 mm if you prefer to use the metric system.

Moreover, you will be doing the KFB (Knit into Front and then Back) or Bar Increase when working on this project. The KFB or Bar Increase is one of the simple methods of increasing your stitch count by 1 stitch.
