Market Bag Crochet Pattern
Wenona Market Bag Crochet Pattern
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 they 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!
- #4 worsted weight cotton yarn such as Lily Sugar N Cream, Paintbox Cotton Aran, etc
- Size J-6mm hook
- Yarn needle for weaving in ends
8 DC and 3 rows =2”x2” square
Finished piece measures approx. 21.5” long and 10.5” wide in the middle without stretching.
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.
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 loop, insert hook into next st, draw up 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.
You can get the PDF of the pattern on Ravelry or LoveCrafts. We have another market bag pattern coming very soon that will be a little bigger and include our new granny square pattern—A Primrose Granny Square.
