The Aran Shopper Bag is a pattern to create your own eco-friendly market bag, ideal for both grocery shopping, as a beach bag or as a casual bag for a relaxed day out.
The Aran Shopper Bag comes in two practical sizes, and is easy to knit while containing techniques to keep things interesting for the knitter! The bottom corners are made sturdier by working German short rows, while a cable travels diagonally from the left corner to become the bag handle. The bag is worked in the round, with the cable handles being worked back and forth.
The sample bags were knit in hardwearing jute, but a similar sturdy plant-based yarn should work well for a durable bag. Cotton worked very well for test knitters; linen would also be suitable.
Small: 25cm/10” (width) x 23cm/9” (height) with handle around 13cm/5” in height Large: 30cm/12” (width) x 38cm/15” (height) with handle around 30cm/12” in height
As a knitter from the Aran Islands, I'm delighted to have my knitting patterns available here : )
