Pattern: Mesh Bag
Source: Gifts and Accessories by Beehive, Book 90. Pattern, p. 20.
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy (dk), Rose 006, Turquoise 008
Content: 41% Cotton, 34% Hemp, 25% Modal
Balls: 50 gm, 160 m (I used 2 and a bit to complete this)
Crochet hook: 3.5 mm (US E, US 4)
I finally made this bag. I have wanted to make it for years. I like how it folds down to fit into its own carrying clutch. My version is one row short on the mesh, but it was getting so large I knew it was time to stop.
I hope to give these colourful bags as gifts. They are sure to help reduce the use of a few plastic bags, and do so in style!
I plan to modify this pattern to use one ball of Hempathy. I am not sure it can be done. If successful, the finished pattern will be posted here. In the mean time you can download the vintage pattern. I believe Gifts and Accessories by Beehive, Book 90 is now in the public domain and therefore I can share. If I find out differently I will remove this link immediately.
