People have been asking a lot about market bags this summer, so I’ve put together a little bit of inspiration for you. I prefer crochet for market bags, the stitch reinforces the strength. Plus crochet is fun in the summer, it’s an extremely comfortable way to work with plant fibres. A basic crochet bag (like the second below) is also a great next level project for new or inexperienced crocheters.
French Market Bag
Here’s a great one for the people who aren’t afraid of the hook – a gorgeous french market bag crocheted with cotton!
Crochet Grocery Bag
I designed this little bag many, many moons ago and it’s still one of my favourites. My favourite version were the ones I made a few years ago with some Quince & Co Sparrow Linen – they’re sturdy, light, and put away up nicely!
- Cascade Ultra Pima, Kelbourne Mojave (1 skein)
- BC Garn Bio Balance (1 skein)
- Quince & Co Sparrow (1 skein, use a 3.5mm/E hook).
Provence Summer String Bag
I love the lace in this bag – it’s vintage without being too much. You can easily change the handles to make them longer.
