Pop in Black Grocery Bag

It's been awhile. So here is a new pattern!

It's that time of year where I am trying to clean and organize. But I got distracted with the yarn I had just waiting for me in my closet.

And so I had to use it somehow, and what better way then a shopping bag? This bag is a bit different from most. You start at the bottom and make a decently solid base then the middle of the bag is like a netting, then you complete the handles last. The reason this bag ended up being two colors was I ran out of the black yarn. But I ended up loving the contrast of black and then the colorful pop of the other color. It took be about 4 hours total to make it and write and publish the pattern. So it should take around 3 hours to make.

So without further ado, here is the Pop in Black Grocery Bag! (Though it can be used for other things than groceries).



Materials Needed:
-H (5.00 mm) hook (if you want a larger bag, use a larger hook)
-1 skein worsted weight yarn in color A
-1 skein worsted weight yarn in color B
-needle for weaving in ends
-scissors
I used Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn for this bag. It can also be made using cotton, etc.

Ch=chain
Sl st= slip stitch
St=stitch
Sc= single crochet
Dc=double crochet

Notes: 
-This pattern has not been tested, so if there is any error, please let me know in the comments! Thanks! 
-the number in the parenthesis at the end of the rows is the number of stitches you should have after finishing (including any ch 3 that counted as a double crochet stitch, etc). So if you have (12) at the end of the row, you should have 12 stitches. 


Start with color A (I used black)
ch 4, sl st in first chain to form circle.
1)  Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc 11 in chain circle, sl st in top of ch 3 (12)

2)  Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc twice in same st, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 3 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 stitches, dc in next 3 sts, join with sl st in top of ch 3 (24)

3)Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 2 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 9 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 6 sts, join with sl st in top of ch 3 (36)

4) Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 6 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 15 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 9 sts, join with sl st in top of ch 3 (48)

5) Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 9 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 21 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 12 sts, join with sl st in top of ch 3 (60)

6)Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 12 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 27 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 15 sts, join with sl st in top of ch 3 (72)

7)  Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 15 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 33 stitches, 3 dc in next 3 sts, dc in next 18 sts, join with sl st in top of ch 3 (84)


8)  Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1),* skip 1 st, dc in next st, ch 1* repeat from * to *all the way around, sl st in 3rd ch to join (42 dc total)

9) Sl st into ch, ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1), * skip stitch, dc in chain space, ch 1* repeat from * to* all the way around, sl st in 3rd ch to join (42 dc total)

10-28)  repeat row 9

Switch to Color B (which is optional, you could continue in color A if you only want a single color bag), do so by fastening off color A and then sl stitching the color B to where you ended

29) ch 1, sc in chain space, *sc in dc, sc in chain space * repeat from * to * all the way around, sc in 3rd chain, sl st in first sc to join (84 sc stitches)

33) ch 1, sc in next 10 stitches, work 60 sc stitches into chain space, sc in next 25 sc stitches, work 60 sc stitches into chain space, sc in next 15 stitches, sl st to first sc to join (170 sc stitches)

34) ch 1, sc in each st around, join with sl st to first sc (170)
