NOTES:

1.
Read instructions all the way through before beginning.
2. Treble Crochet V stitch = treble, chain 1, treble (tr, ch 1, tr)
3. When working the joining slipstitch pull the stitch tight. That way you won’t be tempted to work into it next time around.
4. If your gauge is larger than stated, 5 ounces may not be enough to finish bag. So make your first one out of a 7 ounce skein.
5. Be sure to change to the H hook for working rounds 16-21, this gives your bag a stable top.
6. You can make the Go Green Market Bag without the CD, it will be less structured if you choose to leave it out.
