Solar Flare

 While teaching my summer away, I have designed this simple market tote - Solar Flare.  Made in Noro Taiyo (2 balls), the granny square front and back are done in continuous rounds - only 2 ends to weave in per square!  The bottom, sides, and handle are all one long piece done in long rows - only 6 of them - and use the leftovers from each of the 2 balls of yarn.  The top of the handle is tapered to fit on your shoulder well.  It is bright, lightweight, strong, and fast to make.  A couple of afternoons, really.  Three handle lengths - long to go across the body, medium to hang off the shoulder, and short to hang off an arm.  Only $4, and a lot of fun to make.  Enjoy!  You can buy it on Ravelry with the button below.
