Chevron Market Bag
About this Pattern
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 Measurements:
28" circumference and 15" tall, not including strap.
