V-Stitch Grocery/Produce Bag Crochet Pattern

I wanted a big bag for shopping
 that was pretty and sturdy.
So I designed one..
It even holds a 7 pound Maximo!
I had a lot of people asking for this pattern bag to be
 written for a chunky yarn.
 When I saw the Red Heart Strata Yarn, I immediately thought 
it was perfect for this bag pattern.
And it is!

See the Video Tutorial on my Youtube Channel

Pattern:
Option 1 - ch 37, Option 2 - ch 27
R: 1 - ch 36, *2 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc in each ch across, 2 sc in the last ch*,

Working back down the opposite side of the ch, repeat from * to *, join, ch 1
(Op.1 - 38 + 38 = 76 sc, Op.2 28 + 28 = 56sc)

R: 2 - R: 3 -1 sc in each sc around, join, ch1 (76 sc, 56 sc))

R: 4 - 1 sc in each sc, join, ch 3 (76 sc, 56 sc))

R: 5 - 1 dc in the 1st 2 sts, ch 1, sk the next st,
* 1dc in the next 2 sts, ch 1, sk the next st* , repeat from * to *around,
join to 1st dc.

R: 6 - Ch 3, and 1 dc in the sp between the 1st 2 dc, ch1,
 *2 dc in the space between the next 2 dc to form a "V", ch 1 *
 Repeat from * to * around, join to 1st dc.

R: 7-22 - Repeat R : 6 ( add more rows if you want a longer bag)

R: 23 - 1 sc in each st around, join, ch 1

R: 24-26 - Repeat R : 23
Handle :
R: 1 - Ch 36
 ( Ch more If  a longer handle is desired - this would be a great over the shoulder bag)
1 sc in each sc, ch1, turn

Sew one end to each side of the bag with matching thread.....Now lets go shopping!
