Reusable market bags are a huge trend right now–and for good reason! They can be used for trips to the grocery store, to a farmer’s market, or anywhere else that would normally require a shopping bag. This crochet market bag pattern is quick and easy so you can make a collection of them for your next trip to the store.
Crochet Market Bag Pattern
2 Skeins Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton Yarn
Size J (6 mm) Crochet Hook
Sc: single crochet
Dc: double crochet
2dc: work 2 double crochet stitches in next stitch
Approximately 17” by 14” unstretched (not including handle/strap).
- Chain 3 at beginning of rounds does not count as a stitch for the first 5 rounds. When joining at the end of rounds, join to first stitch. For rounds 6- 17, the chain sts at the beginning of rounds do count as a stitch. For rounds 18-20, the chain sts at the beginning of round do not count as a stitch. When joining at the end of rounds, join to first stitch.
- This bag has a significant amount of stretch to it. If you’d like it to be smaller, work fewer rounds between rounds 6 and 17. If you’d like it larger, work more rounds during that section.
