I want to try the idea of turning a mandala into a market bag, and it worked! It makes a perfect little project bag or accessory for your next picnic or visit to the beach or markets. I had hoped to make it with a single ball of cotton, but there just wasn’t enough so I went with a contrasting colour from my stash to finish it off. I have used a pattern that I had in a book at home – Mandalas to Crochet by Haafner Linssen – rewritten it to make it easier to follow and then extended the pattern to create the market bag.
Love the yarn an patterns just had to hunt done right size knitting needles.
