Instructions are lacking. Personally I would forgo the grommets, make the handles longer and just tie them in knots with a bit of the ends loose for poms.

I agree. There are no instructions on how to apply gromets. Also, I am not able to print this pattern, all I get is the heading. What happened? Please help!

Interesting, but the instructions don't include the size of the Grommets and how to put them in the product/tote.

Killroy - you are not reading the pattern correctly. First row says, work in sc for 11 inches. Actual pattern site is here http://www.sugarncream.com/data/pattern/pdf/Lily_SugarnCreamweb07_cr_bag.en_US.pdf
