V-Stitch Grocery/Produce Bag Crochet Pattern

V Stitch Grocery Shopping Bag
 Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

This Crochet Pattern has been retested and Updated with Lots of pics, and a Brand New Video At This LINK

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.
You can Stitch up This Shopping Bag in 
Med(4) or Chunky (5) Yarn.

Crocheted bags, sweaters or even collars are very beautiful, and look so nice on our dogs. And besides the fact these are beautiful, crocheted dog accessories are also very comfortable for our little or big animal friends.
