Crochet Market Bag Free Pattern by Moara Crochet

Free Crochet Pattern | Pocket Crochet Market Bag

To help the ever mountain of plastic in our world, I want to do my tiny part to help reduce the use of plastic bags within our household. So this month I would love if you could join me in being ‘Crochet Conscious‘ through making your own crochet market bag. My crochet pocket bag is for EVERYDAY! not just the weekly shop at the food market. Made with 4ply linen yarn this bag is stronge, light, natural & reduces down to a little circle (or Jellyfish), which you can pop into your handbag for those moments when we can avoid taking the unecessary plastic bag. A quick and easy crochet project suitable for every level. Plus it is in 3 sizes! Including small (for a piece of fruit), medium (the size of an average pastic bag) & large for those bigger items.

Each free crochet pattern will be made with both a photo tutorial & a video tutorial.


The crochet pattern for my Pocket Market Bag is also available as a print friendly PDF in my ETSY Shop.
