Counting the stockinette stitch base, this bag has 4 different stitch patterns. The stitches are more solid near the bottom, getting more open as they near the top of the bag. The bag is finished with a stitch that is less stretchy than most, to help give the top of the bag and the handle some stability. The wide handle is short, to help keep the bag from hanging to your knees when it's full.
Knitting begins with a provisional cast on. The base is worked back and forth, then stitches are picked up, and knitting continues in the round. A couple of stitch changes later, most of the stitches are bound off, and then the handle is knit.
Pattern includes both written and charted stitch instructions.

I have knit and crocheted, and done various forms of embroidery and needlepoint since early grammar school. Making things with bits of colored string is so integral to my being that the few times of my life when I don't have *something* on the go feel empty, and without form.
