Pink and Grey Plastic Bag Tote

Posted on November 8, 2013

I present a pink and grey plastic bag tote featuring a netting stitch look. I crocheted this tote bag using recycled grey retail bags and pink plastic newspaper sacks. Both types of plastic bags were cut into strips using these plarn making tutorials.

I just love the fish net look of this stitch in pink plarn. It’s just so pretty looking. The contrast between the pink plarn and grey really works well together.

I made some minor changes from the original plastic net market bag pattern. I used a J (6 mm) crochet hook when I crocheted the pink plarn section. The pink recycled bags are thinner and the J hook makes a tighter stitch. I also did 23 rounds finishing with the pink plarn before starting the top edging row with grey plarn.

I added wider dual strap handles to complete my reusable tote bag. I worked even on 6 stitches counting the ch-1 turning chain to make the straps 2 inches wide. My finished bag is 11 inches wide by 11 inches across with 14 inch long straps.
