In my quest to become more eco-friendly and live a greener lifestyle, I wanted to create a produce bag that I could take with me to the grocery store. This bag is light enough that it doesn’t tare (the produce scale won’t register its weight) and compact enough that I can throw a couple in my purse and just go.

This pattern has NOT been extensively tested. Errors may be present. Please let me know if you find any errors or have any feedback.

Alternatively, this bag could be made with cotton yarn. However, if you make it with cotton, keep in mind that it will not stretch.
