Art and Craft Stall Part 2: Market Bags

image

Following on from my mini crochet market bags, I have a pattern for full size market bags.

Used 4mm hook and Moda Vera Beetle cotton acrylic blend.

Pattern

Ch4, join with a slip stitch to form a ring

Round 1: Ch3, work 12 dc into the ring. Do not join

Round 2: Work 2 dc in each dc around. Do not join (24dc)

Round 3: Work 2dc in the first dc, 1dc in the next. Repeat pattern around until you have 36 dc. Do not join.

Round 4: Work 2dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next 2 dc. Repeat pattern around until you have 48 dc. Do not join.

Round 5: Work 2dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next 3 dc. Repeat pattern around until you have 60 dc. Do not join.

Round 6: Work 2dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next 4 dc. Repeat pattern around until you have 72 dc. Do not join.

Round 7: Work 2dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next 5 dc. Repeat pattern around until you have 84 dc. Join with a slip stitch.

Round 8: Ch4. [Skip 2 stitches, sc in next stitch, Ch 4] repeat around. You should have 28 ch4 loops.

Round 9 onwards: Continue working around using ch4, sc into ch4 loops from previous round until you reach your desired height finishing with a ch4. I used 23 rounds. I also chose to change to white after round 18 (mainly because I ran out of my main colour but I liked the effect and continued it for each bag!)

Round 1 of handles: Work 3 sc in each ch 4 loop around.

Round 2: sc in each sc around.

Round 3: Ch55 (start of first handle) skip 21 sc, sc in the next 21, ch 55 (start of second handle) skip 21, sc in the next 21. This should bring you back to the start of the first handle.

Round 4: Sc into the chains of the handle and in each sc around. Sc into the chains of the second handle and into each of the remaining sc.

Round 5: sc in each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch to first sc and finish off.
