The Chevron Market Bag uses a dense lace motif of interconnecting points and chevrons to create a fabric that stretches but retains strength. Right-leaning, left-leaning, and centered decreases are sometimes chained to form strong diagonals and sometimes stacked for vertical lines, with adjacent yarnovers to create open areas and balance the fabric.

The base is worked first, then stitches are picked up around the circumference of the base and worked in the round up to the top. Stitches for the straps continue on each side of the bag, then are joined with the three-needle bind-off.

Finished Size 28” circumference and 15” tall, not including strap.

Yarn Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Cotton (100% mercerized cotton; 93 yd 84 m/50 g): #24 ivory, 7 balls. Yarn distributed by Westminster Fibers.

Needles Size 4 (3.5 mm): 16” circular (cir) and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); stitch holders; tapestry needle.
