Market Bag- Free Crochet Pattern

 Market Bag

This is a super easy market bag and it’s super quick to make too! The bag is made from the top-down and uses only single crochets, slip stitches, and chains. This bag looks so much better than plastic bags and you can use it again and again, so it's eco-friendly.


- Yarn: I used Bernat’s Handicrafter Cotton Yarn in the colour white, but here are some other great cotton yarns to use: WeCrochet’s Dishie, Lion Brand’s 24/7 Cotton, WeCrochet’s Simply Organic Cotton, and Paintbox’s Cotton Aran. They are all available in lots of beautiful colours.  

- 6mm hook, the gauge is not crucial in this pattern as long as you use #4 worsted cotton yarn, your bag should turn out fine 

- Yarn Needle

- Scissors 


Ch: Chain 

Slst: Slip Stitch 

Rnd: Round 

Sc: Single Crochet 

(): The number inside the brackets states how many stitches you should have at the end of a row/round

Sk: Skip 

*: Repeat the instructions between * and * as many times as stated


- This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (do not join) 



Gauge is not crucial to this pattern, as long as you use the same size hook as me and similar yarn, your bag should work out fine, just make sure to use cotton yarn, or your bag will become very, very, very stretched out and huge. 

Ch. 81, join with a slst to first ch, make sure chain is not twisted

Rnd 1: Sc in each ch around (81 sts) 

Rnd 2: Sc in each st around (81 sts)

Rnd 3: *Ch 4, sk next 2 sts, slst in next st* Repeat around

Rnd 4: *Ch 5, slst in ch 4 space* Repeat around 

Rnd 5-30: *Ch 5, slst in ch 5 space* Repeat around 

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing


Thread the yarn tail through a yarn needle and weave it in and out of the ch 5 spaces. Pull tight and fasten off. 


Ch. 65

(If you want your handle to be shorter or longer make sure to adjust the stitch count accordingly)

R1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, Sc in each ch across, ch 1, turn 

R2: Sc in each st across, ch 1, turn 

Repeat R2 until your handle is as wide as you want it,  I did 3 rows. 

Sew handle to the bag, making sure the two sides of the handle are on opposite ends from each other. Another important thing is to make sure the handle is not twisted 

Congrats! You finished your market bag, let me know how it went in the comments!
