Market Bag Survey: Results!

You may recall several weeks ago we held a fun survey to see which colour you would choose to make a Knit Market Bag. The colours were drawn from Pantone’s Spring 2012 Fashion Colour Report, and the pattern was the Ilene Bag, a popular freebie on Ravelry. 

As promised, we made our bag in the popular choice, Tangerine Tango. We used just over 1 skein of Super 10 cotton. If you want to make the strap long, you’ll need 2 skeins of the Super 10, but if you are ok with making it a little shorter you can get away with one. Read more about our bag HERE.
