Wenona Market Bag Crochet Pattern

crochet market bag pattern by Sunflower Cottage Crochet

I am in love with crochet market bag patterns!  These market bags are eco-friendly and easy to clean when using cotton yarn (which I strongly recommend).  As a side note, this post may contain affiliate links at no extra cost to you!

This one is a show-stopper of a bag, too.  The floral bottom is gorgeous.  The solid and open sides jump out and catch the eye.  The sturdy top band and thick strap make it a strong piece that isn’t uncomfortable.

Don’t Be Fooled… This bag can hold a lot!

The Wenona Market Bag has a lot going for it.  It’s stylish, but it’s also very functional.  It has plenty of stretch to it, but not so much that you will lose a loaf of bread out of it!  I loaded mine up with several canned goods, boxed goods, and even a loaf of bread right on top of all of that!

IT HELD. Like a champ!

It is also not a difficult bag to make. We have the stitch instructions below for you as well as on the pattern and a blog post and YouTube tutorial on the paired single crochet. We have you covered!

Pattern Specifics:



8 DC and 3 rows =2”x2” square


The finished piece measures approx. 21.5” long and 10.5” wide in the middle without stretching.

Pattern Notes:

Chain 3 at the beginning does count as a dc.

Ch1 does not count as a stitch

To join the rounds, SS to the top of the bean stitch or to the top of a ch3 unless indicated otherwise.

Special Stitches

Bean Stitch—*Yo, insert hook into indicated st, yo, pull up a loop*, rep *to*, yo, pull thru all 7 loops on hook, ch1.

Paired Single Crochet—Start with a single crochet at the beginning of the round, then insert your hook into that same stitch you just completed a single crochet in and pull up a loop, hold, insert hook into the next stitch, draw up a loop (three loops on hook), yo, pull through all three loops on hook.

To complete the next PSC, repeat the steps: insert hook into same st, draw up a loop, insert hook into next st, draw up a loop, yo, pull through all loops on hook.  Do this for each stitch to the end, do not put another sc in the final stitch.
