Dunya Crochet Market Bag PDF
With a sturdy base, and surprisingly roomy expandable mesh body, the Dunya bag by Nina Holubcova is the sustainable alternative to single-use paper or plastic bags. It’s lightweight, yet durable enough for your next market or yarn shopping trip. The tonal variation of hand dyed Monokrom Cotton adds extra interest to the straightforward mesh stitch.
Pattern Notes: The bag is worked from the bottom up seamlessly, starting with the center single crochet base, continuing with the eyelet mesh body, finished with center single crochet edging. The double handles are then joined to the body as you go. Written in standard US terms, with charts for the base and mesh portion of the body.
