Lining the Market Bag

The blurb on the Market Bag pattern says its stretchiness is a virtue. But I didn't like the way the bag sagged when I put my purse into it. I also didn't like the way the handle curled. I thought that lining the bag with fabric might overcome these problems. I hurried and scurried to finish knitting the bag before I went away, but then had to wait until I came back to do the lining. I think it works. The bag lining is loose, the handle lining sewn to the knitting with back stitch.


  1. Looks beautiful! So delicate and pretty pattern!

  2. Thanks. It is a pretty pattern and works better now that it is lined.
