With this Bloom Market Tote, can you  see why I’m calling the colors “clean and modern”? The durability of this sturdy, weight 5 cotton yarn, is perfect for holding up a bit of weight (like market veggies and fruits)!

Bloom is very soft, so even with a bit of weight in your tote, the handles will be sturdy and comfy on your shoulder or in your hand! So that you can see the true scale of this tote, here is a terrible cell phone picture of one in use:

Design Wars Challenge | Pam’s Market Tote

I’m participating in Design Wars again this week!

You can read more about it over on our blog.

Luster Sheen Yarn | Red Heart Yarns | Salena Baca Crochet

I signed up for this challenge because I knew this yarn had to be transformed into a tote!

Luster Sheen is a sport weight yarn that is woven to be very durable, doesn’t split, and does a brilliant job of holding up under a lot of weight.

There are a hand-full of colors available in this line, and the tones pair together quite nicely; from classic colors like Black, Cherry Red, Natural and Vanilla, to more colorful options like Hot Pink, Ocean, Lime, Violet and Mid Blue. I love Cherry Red as a solid color option, and quite liked the way Natural, Lime, Mid Blue and Violet looked together!

I designed Pam’s Market Tote for this challenge; it’s worked with an F hook, so it does take a bit of time to construct. I typically prefer quick results, so I had to remind myself to be patient with this design – I don’t work with sport weight very often, but the finished results are so very rewarding!

Using this weight yarn allowed me to input more design elements into my tote; giving me more opportunity for detail, and giving me space to use more of this awesome stitch pattern!

Pam’s Market Tote is written in two sizes; Medium: 12” tall x 20” around (10” flat), and Large: 12.5” tall x 25” around (12.5” flat). Each one has handles that sit comfortably on the shoulder, and should let the tote fit nicely under arm. I incorporated a drawstring with toggle bead, and two closure beads, for function. And, I just really love buttons and beads, so anytime I can add them to a project in a functional way that looks great, I’m excited!

One last feature is the Clasp Cord; a cord with a bead on one end, and a Lobster Claw clasp on the other. I’ve designed this with a slit gap in the center so that it can easily be attached or removed to the handles of your tote. Use this for decoration, to hold your decorative key chains or loyalty rewards cards, or for your keys – it’s pretty, and it works!
