WIP Wednesday – shopping bag

Happy Wednesday crafters!

I’ve finally started a project that I’ve had pinned for a few years now: a netted linen market bag from PurlSoho. I’m actually making mine using jute rather than linen and a 3.75mm hook, so I’m expecting to do less rows while keeping the same size. 


I’ve started the bottom of the bag and it has worked up quite fast so far, although the jute isn’t the most pleasant fiber to work with (it’s a bit rough). I’m wondering if a go in the washing machine might soften it a bit. Has anyone tried to wash jute before?

Hopefully, the bag will be finished pretty soon, I really need a new bag for my fruits and veggies shopping 🙂
