The Katie Tote is a great tote to use as a purse, market bag, or even a yarn bag! It’s quick to work up and has beautiful detail! This is a great project for gifting or selling, because you don’t have to work about sizing and fitting.
You need a DK (#3) weight yarn. I used Cascade Pima Cotton yarn for my sample. This yarn is a beautiful, shiny yarn made with 100% pima cotton. Also, there are so many fun colors to choose from! It is a sturdy but soft yarn. Therefore, it makes a wonderful yarn for any project calling for cotton! I highly recommend this yarn, but you can also use any other dk (#3) weight cotton yarn. Just be sure to check gauge!
You may also want to grab some small to medium sized wooden beads to add to the drawstring on the tote. I think this adds a nice touch to the bag, but it is optional.
This pattern is rated Easy on the pattern difficulty scale.
You will construct this bag from the bottom up. You will work in the round and join for some rounds, while working others in a continuous round.
The Katie Tote is easily customizable to be made large or smaller.
Also, there is no sewing involved at all! However, you will still have to weave in your ends! That’s my least favorite part of any project!
