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 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.
