#418 Crochet Market Bag

Posted on by MK Carroll

Just in time for spring farmers markets! This is a pattern I worked up for the Hemp for Knitting yarn company. It's a crochet mesh string bag with a base that doubles as a pouch, so you can tuck the sides and straps in and toss the bag into a backpack, glove box, etc. until you need it. The yarn is Hemp for Knitting allhemp3, a fingering-weight mercerized 100% hemp yarn that is lightweight, strong, and machine washable.

Hemp for Knitting is offering the pattern on their site as the #418 Crochet Market Bag, $5.50 USD; their photos show the sample they did in Foggy and Raspberry allhemp3. You can find HFK allhemp3 in 21 different colors at Kpixie.com.

I did my pattern sample in Sprout Green and Sapphire Blue:

I'm sharing the distribution rights with Hemp for Knitting and retaining the copyright, so I plan to work up another sample for photos and format my version of the pattern for sale as a PDF later this year.
