Starting a Saturday Market Bag

July 18, 2006

For those of you thinking about starting a Saturday Market Bag, look no furthur. I just recieved some excellent photos of the beginning (which is the hardest part).  The first few rows are the toughest, and awkward parts of this pattern, but once you get going there will be no problem. Go on over there and say hi to Louise and thanks for a great explanation.
Just a small reminder that if you would like to e-mail me a photo and a link to your blog post of you finished market bag, I would be happy to put it in the gallery.  I just love all the variations of bags I’m getting.

    hello there.. i loved the pattern and i just cast on.. but i noticed that there is no gauge listed on the actual pattern.. since i am living in Turkey i have to use subtitute yarn for this and it would be great if you can tell me what the gauge is for the pattern.. thanks..

    The pattern doesn’t have a gauge because it doesn’t really matter. The bag stretches so much that it doesn’t really stay one size or shape, plus it’s nearly impossible to measure. The cotton fleece is approximately 11 WPI and about 20 sts over 4 inches. Here’s more about the yarn if you are interested. Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece
