    This worked up beautifully. I used a different yarn, but even so. I love how it came out.

    I have a question about this bag. I am at round 5 of the side where I change colors. It is not turning into a tube shape. It is still round like a doily. Am I doing something wrong? Is it when I do the handles that it becomes tube shape?

      Hi Susan! Yes, the Maui Market bag will look flat and round like a doily until about Round 29 or so when it will start to take on a bag/tube shape. Happy crocheting! – Nicola, Editor
