"This cute little bag is perfect for a quick trip when you're just picking up a couple things at the store. Or, you can always use it as your day to day purse. I mean, it is that stinking cute! For my bag, I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK, which is a medium wight 3 DK yarn. Cotton is usually best to use for a market bag because they then to stretch less after blocking. I used 375 yards to create my bag. Also, this bag does well with a lining. You don't have to line it (most market bags are not lined, and they stretch quite a bit, but I lined mine because I don't like the stretching! But, do what makes you happy!"
This Crochet Market Bag would be great for shopping at the grocery store or farmer’s market, carrying other crochet projects or going to the pool. Basic crochet stiches - single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches are all you need to know to make this Market Bag. The instructions have detailed directions for crocheting the handle. The bag measures approximately 16" x 9” (not including the handles). The handles are short and sturdy. Some shoulder straps really stretch and almost make the bag unusable, so I created this bag to be a ‘handbag’ and not a shoulder bag.
