Green Leaf Market Bag


This pattern was the result of me wanting to make a bag that was beyond the basic mesh bag.

To throw another element in, I wanted a project that would be 100%  customizable, so anyone could take my basic pattern and create something  that suits their own needs. I will include a basic chart and pattern  but I’m also going to give you the “recipe” you simply pick and choose  what you want to do with it as well.

The recipe includes the option to make this bag one color or two, so  make it a large tote style bag or something smaller in diameter, like a  nice gift bag for a bottle of wine. In addition, this is a pattern I use  to teach with, so if your an expert follow the color and stitch charts,  but if you are new to crochet and can make a double crochet, there is  enough detail in the pattern to walk you through making this bag.

I made a full sized tote with two balls of yarn in one color. I was  playing yarn chicken when I made this bag in two colors, so I’d suggest  buying two skeins of each color for two tones bags.

Hook size

3.5 mm o E sized hook

Yarn Requirements

You will need 350 yards of one color yarn or split that between two colors of DK weight cotton.
