1 cone of cotton yarn + a 9-hour road trip + inspiration from Bob Wilson = The Granny Rocco Bag! Then of course, one size couldn’t possibly be enough…so I came up with five! XS-XL 😊
XS is just for fun. It's just big enough to hold your average sized coffee mug. Which is great since they make such great welcome & thank you gifts!
SM is just the right size for gifting. It's the perfect gift bag for practically everything including Easter goodies. You're welcome! LOL.
MD & LG (my fave!) are great project & market bags. I use these two sizes every week for my shopping & errands. All the compliments are a serious bonus!
XL is the best size for the beach! I suppose it could be used for quite alot of things, but my daughter says it's excellent for toting my granddaughter's gear to & from the beach and leaving most of the sand there!
The BASE & SIDES of the bag are BEGINNER to ADVANCED BEGINNER FRIENDLY. It's just a Granny Square with one special stitch and a decrease! What makes this pattern really special, though, is the shaping of the handles. It's taken me a while to perfect this technique. There are SEVERAL SPECIAL DECREASES in the HANDLES that are definitely INTERMEDIATE. As usual though, I've included a COMPLETE PHOTO TUTORIAL FOR ALL SPECIAL STITCHES and the BASE & SIDES (just in case). Plus, the PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION for those of us that still do that! At 39 pages long, it's practically an eBook, but it is 5 Bag patterns in one :)

I cant wait to make these!

Great pattern! I love all the details and the fact that there are many different sizes. I'm working on my second bag now.
