The patten at bernat site is better. For additional help, see https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110 == 806195104AApBAA3. There's a great explanation about bernat pattern and how to interpret the () and [ ]. I was ready to give up on this till I found yahoo answers.

I have attempted to follow the directions and it is impossible. I have modified the pattern to "look" the same as the picture still using the triple stitch and trip 2 together. But instead of the ch5 I have done ch3 to make the bag pattern work with the triangle effect. Also, I added a dbl decker look. If I can I will post a picture.

Did you know you can make these bag out of the plastic bags you get. Just cut them into 1inch strips tie ends together and crochet. No yarn needed, they are very strong, last along time, don't stretch out and environmental friendly. Can be used with most patterns.

Is this the full pattern or only half the pattern because a lot of people are having issues and I am also having issues. Does anyone have the full correct pattern thank you so much

There is definitely something wrong with these instructions. Does the author mean for the project to be FOLDED after fastening off and before starting handle? From the starting of the handle the instructions do not make sense. However, the mesh portion is very stable because the design makes little triangles. I have taken this part of the instruction, and used it with instructions for a String Bag. The String Bag instructions originally came from Lily. The mesh resulting from that pattern was not stable unless the yarn was used double-strand. My updated string bag with the "triangle" mesh seems to work well.


I have figured out what this person meant by the tr2tog. Try this. Chain 7, (which counts as 1 tr and ch 3. YO twice (as you would any other tr stitch) and draw up a loop in next stitch. (4 loops on hook now) YO, work two loops. (3 loops on hook now.) YO, DRAW UP LOOP IN NEXT STITCH (5 loops on hook) YO, work off two loops, YO work off two loops, YO work off last 3 loops. What is in capitals is what is missing from the pattern.

Need video instruction on everyday market tote bag


I made some of these a few years ago in white then my 11 year old and I tie dyed them. Great project, and these bags expand to hold so much stuff. I get a lot of compliments!
