It is not lined i just finshed it yesterday. I made a boo boo but managed to to do enough correct rows on top and bottom to make it look like a design element. I am going to sew or crochet some sturdy rope to the handles to keep it from stretching. Because with my shopper i am wearing that handle out. I don't really want o put this patternin my e book because I made a mistake. I have a cream and black planned that one I may go in the ebook.
