Crochet a Market Bag

Here's a very easy crochet tutorial to show you how to crochet a market bag!

MARKET BAG:
MARKET BAG PATTERN:

1. Crochet a chain any length. This bag works from the bottom up, so the chain should be as wide as you would like the bag to be.

2. Double crochet in the 3rd chain from the hook. *Chain 1, skip the next stitch, double crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * across the row. At the end of the chain, begin working down the other side, making the double crochet in the space between double crochet stitches on the opposite side of the chain. At the end of the row, slip stitch to join in the 2nd stitch of the first 3 stitches skipped.

3. Chain 3, double crochet in the next double crochet. *Chain 1, double crochet in the next double crochet, repeat from * around, slip stitch to join.

4. Repeat step 3 until the bag is as long as you would like it to be. Fasten off. Weave yarn ends into the finished work.

Working with 4 strands of yarn, make a chain of approximately 80 stitches. Pass the cord through the 3rd row of stitches from the top. Tie the two ends in a knot.
