In the Designer's Words: No more plastic bags! Crochet our own pretty market bag and carry your groceries in style. This crochet market bag is easy to make, using the linen stitch.
Market bags are the perfect way to combine your love of free crochet patterns with practical uses. While buying recycled bags might seem like a cheaper and easier solution, those bags are not made to last ironically enough. If you tend to carry a lot of heavy groceries and need something sturdy for your veggies, then check out the Striped Crochet Market Bag. This crochet pattern makes the perfect market bag, because it is roomy, sturdy, and easy-to-carry. Apples, oranges, and even canned goods will easily be carted in this cutie.
Keep your planet clean and green with the crochet shopping and market bag instead of a plastic bag. Crochet these versatile and long-lasting market bags with a free pattern. Moreover, use four-ply of linen thread in desired colors and combinations for this crochet project. Use a 3.00mm crochet hook with a tapestry needle to work on this market crochet bag. You can also use the beads to embellish these handmade market bags. However, it's up to you to use the buttons and beads.
"This Afternoon Market Bag is named for how quick and simple it is to work up. Using a very simple pattern repeat, this market bag works up in an afternoon (or two!). This bag is very beginner friendly. This bag has a mesh structure for the body of the bag and a closed bottom to make sure that none of your items fall out but to give you a little stretch for more farmers market vegetables, more yarn or oddly shaped items."
