Crochet Market Bag
by Amy Loberg
Purchase ePattern
This is THE traditional market bag with some smart details. It has a sturdy bottom and handsome (but not too open) lattice-work for most of the body. That means that you can see what's inside without too much effort, but you're not going to lose your grapes. Also thanks to the mesh top, it's faster to crochet and uses less yarn. It's worked from the bottom up in one continuous spiral with the strap crocheted last.
Materials 3 hanks of Classic Elite Provence
Shown in Crushed Violets
Finished Size Opening about 23″ diameter
Hook Size US H/8 (5.00 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Though, to be fair, gauge isn't critical in this project.
Gauge 14 stitches × 7 rows = 4″ in Double crochet
Again gauge isn't critical in this project.

Short Handle Market Bag
by Amy Loberg
Purchase ePattern
For a sturdier, more solid bag, you may want to consider the two-toned Short Handle Market Bag. The bottom is nice and dense as are the handle and upper rim of the bag, —all worked in a contrasting color. The body, though dense enough to keep all but the smallest objects inside, is worked in alternating rows of tiny eyelets.

Classic Elite Provence
We tend to think of cotton as a soft fiber, and certainly cotton cloth can be exquisitely soft. The tightly spun Classic Elite Provence is remarkably strong yet has a soft feel ... perfect for market bags! Additionally, because it's crocheted, the mesh is quite thick and very durable. Aside from its strength, Provence features a color palette that should please even the most discerning taste.
Fiber Content 100% Mercerized Egyptian Cotton
Yardage / Weight 102 yards per 50 g hank
Suggested Gauge 22 stitches = 4″ on US 5 [3.75 mm] knitting needles
