Hello everyone! If you are an avid crocheter or knitter, chances are you have seen the new Comfy Cotton Blend yarn that Lion Brand came out with a couple months ago, just in time for all the summer cottons of course!

You're in the home stretch now! You've completed the mandala base, the mesh body, and now you're ready to finish off with the straps!
By now, you've got your mandala base finished and you are ready to start on the mesh rounds to create the body of your bag.
Who is ready to get started with the first part of the crochet Marigold Market Bag?? It's mandala time!
Just in time for all those wonderful summer farmers markets, I wanted a market bag that was mesh but had a more stable base, and I wanted it to be beautiful, so a mandala base is the key feature of this lovely bag. Made with Yarnspirations Bernat Softee Baby Cotton, the detail of the stitches is so beautifully defined. What’s better is that it only uses one skein! 🙌🏻 It works up so quickly, you’ll want one in every color 😊
When you finish a blanket only to realize you worked the stitch wrong the whole time, but it is such a wonderful texture, you go with it!
Brighten up your winter blues with a cheerful new kitchen towel pattern!
