I have wanted for a long time to knit a market bag. Now I have found a pattern by Vivian Høxbro. She is a Danish knit designer who has created so many patterns using squares. This bag is called Net Duffel Bag and it is huge. I have worked the bottom so far and is about to begin the body of the bag. The pattern calls for Louet Euroflax linen, but I found a bargain at Drops called Bomull/Lin. The construction of the bag is quite clever. The squares stabilize the bottom in a way I have missed in other market bag patterns. If this work turns out well, I will definitely go for a second bag using the wet-spun linen and I will have a bag for life. A genuine heirloom.
