Pattern Description:

Living in Cache Valley, Utah, one hears the stories about the famous mountain man, Michel Bourdon and the annual gathering of fur trappers that happened here in the 1800s. Rumor has it; the valley received its name from the very trappers who met here each year. They would often stash their fur in hidden caches until they could trade and sell their products to other interested trappers during the yearly gatherings.

The Cache & Stash Market Bag allows you to shop in style while providing you with a reusable and perfect shopping tote for trips to the farmer's market, grocery store or play date at the park.

Created from natural plant fibers, the bag is strong but extremely flexible, growing as your cache requires. The small and medium bags easily hold 1 gallon of milk, while the large holds 2!

Knitted from the top down, you can create your own bags in the colors you like, using only one skein from your personal yarn stash!

They also make great practical gifts, and are fast to knit up; you'll want to make many for your next shopping trip.


Bag is knitted from the top down, using one skein of yarn. Knit the bag until you have a small amount of yarn for grafting the bottom allowing for the greatest use of the yarn.

  • Small: 10 inches x 10 inches
