Bundle of Joy, Week 3: Farmer’s Market Basket

The third pattern in my Bundle of Joy is…. The Farmer’s Market Basket Bag! One of my very first patterns, this market bag expands to carry a full load from the farmer’s market or grocery store or (dare I mention?) the yarn shop. A basketweave pattern dominates the bottom which […]
