Another crochet quickie

This is again for the CAT PAC I’m donating. Skip said she likes green, so hopefully she’ll like this.

Natalie's econoshopper mesh bag

Don’t you like it when you can make something which is of practical use and not merely beautiful? I love it. (Perhaps that’s why most of my FOs are plain ugly-I’m looking to make something functional fast and don’t care what colours I throw together, or about the finishing so much :()

Here are the specs:
Yarn: Acrylic from Hyderabad. Not very nice.
Hook: Boye G/6/4.25 mm metal

Pattern: Natalie’s Econoshopper Mesh bag

Time: 3-4 hours (should take less but you try to surf blogs and edit stories and crochet all at once)
Size: Hmm, didn’t actually measure it. It isn’t crucial I think.
Extra: #1 For this pattern, it would be helpful if you marked your corners before embarking on the bag-shaping bit. Otherwise, it’s a nice toddle.

#2 I made another of these almost a year ago (and gushed about its practicality) and bought this green yarn at the same time! How’s that for coincidence? :-O

WordPress now has a “HTML” tab to its editor for the geeks, I presume.
