Cordial Shopping Bag Free Crochet Pattern and Yarn Review | Posh Pooch Designs

Cordial Shopping Bag Free Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of


This Shopping Bag was originally written to be used with
 the Red Heart Cordial Yarn.
Unfortunately the Cordial Yarn is Discontinued.
So we Decided to re release the Pattern using the 
Bernat Maker Yarn By Yarnspirations.
The Bernat Maker Yarn is a Bulky (5) weight yarn.
It is 72 % Cotton, 28 % Nylon 

It's the perfect combination of fibers for a good sturdy bag.
Cotton for strength and Nylon for stretch.
And it can be machine washed and dried.
