Pattern Description:

American crochet terms.

This is probably my simplest crochet tote market bag pattern. Great for a beginner who wants to learn to crochet in the round.

The bag is worked in a continuous spiral so there is no unsightly joining line.

The bags is perfect for a day at the Farmer's Market or just a trip to the grocery store. Though compact, it will naturally stretch to fit lots of groceries or vegies. A strong, pretty bag, it can also be used as a tote, book bag or beach bag.

It has extra thick straps that are crocheted right onto the bag for extra strength.

My first love is photography but I also paint, bead, crochet and knit.
I live on fifty acres of gardens, fields and forest and much of my inspiration comes from nature and especially my flowers.
I prefer natural fibers but try new things and can create with almost any material.
