I wanted a big bag for shopping
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!

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