Cotton Shopping Bag Crochet Pattern

Cotton Shopping Bag Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs 

The Farmer's market is Open in our town,
And I wanted a new Shopping bag.
 I wanted it to be cotton and washable....
 so.... wa la!

This bag is so easy to stitch up and a great way
 to use up all those left over cotton yarns.

I decided to retest and update this pattern.
And added a Brand new Video.
 I used Caron Cotton Cakes and I Love how it turned out.

It is adjustable to any length you like.

This pattern is confusing!! Would like you to explain row 10 and 11...thank-you

Sorry you are confused. On R : 10 You are basically repeating. a triple crochet ch 1 all the way around on this round.
Then on Round 11' you are repeating the same as R : 10' only stitching in the triple crochet in the ch1 spaces.

Perhaps the last poster meant this: If there are no chain 1s in row 10, how can you crochet in them in row 11? Also what does repeat from 8 mean (R:11) Do you go back to sc? It doesn't look like it. One more thing, how much yarn does it take to complete? I really like the pattern, am anxious to finish it. Thank you for taking the time to post the pattern.
