My Rustic Market Bag Version

I couldn’t stop myself from making this iconic bag, because I’ve seen it everywhere! It’s the first mesh crochet bag in my collection, but I can assure you, that it’s not the last one.

I used cotton yarn that I’ve had in my stash for ages, so I don’t remember exactly what brand it is. I love the flower in the bottom part – it’s not always visible when carrying the bag, but you just know it’s there, and that’s fantastic.

Original pattern I used is called Rustic Market Bag and was designed by ultra-talented Camilla N. Skjoenhaug. You can find it available for free on her blog coffeencrochet.com, or read more about it on ravelry.com.

I want to make a crochet market bag. How do I start?

First of all, go check out some free crochet patterns online and see what you like! It’s good to know what options you have, because it’s easier to choose the right design. When you choose the pattern, it’s time to get the yarn! After that it’s easy as a pie – just follow the instructions, crochet your bag and brag about it on social media 🙂

How to choose the right pattern for me?

First of all, ask yourself what do you want to use it for, because there are many different options. You can go for mesh bags, which are very elastic and can fit a lot, or go for more densely stitched versions, known for their sturdiness.

Mesh bags are stylish and versatile, but are quite weak when it comes to carrying very heavy groceries. Take that into account when making them, but remember, that it’s a perfect choice for beach trips, lightweight trips to farmer’s market and home storage.

What yarn should I choose?

The most popular choice for market bags is cotton, but you can easily go for cotton blends and tightly spun synthetic yarns. Rustic look of these slouchy bags lays in this type of yarn as well, so frizzy wool and wool blends won’t do! Cotton is natural, looks great and is easily washable – what more could you want from a market bag?

Crochet Market Bags with Floral Detail

Rustic Market Bag by Coffee ‘n Crochet

Let’s start with my beloved design from Camilla, which you can see below. What I love about this bag is how it can change depending on the colors you choose, so you can make different versions to fit your current mood. Rosy pink has a nice feminine vibe, so it will be perfect for summer sightseeing walks. Yellow reminds me of ripe wheat, or is it just me?

Original Crochet Market Bags

Filet Crochet Market Bag by Sara Dudek

Why not play with the mesh texture of slouchy bag? Sara decided to incorporate one of the old-fashioned techniques, which is filet crochet, into her design. You can see this modern version in the pictures, so ask yourself – isn’t it just sweet? If you are a pro with filet crochet, try making bags with different designs on them, and call them a collection!

The best part is that you can use ANY square you like, so it allows you to make endless versions. This kind of bag is also much more sturdy than slouchy bags, and keeps the shape nicely.

This bag is called Inga’s Häkelbeutel and was originally designed by Inga Joana Mertens – you can download free crochet pattern from ravelry.com.
