Elegant Market Tote Bag - Crochet Pattern


Hello everyone!๐Ÿ™‚

Today i am sharing my Elegant Market Tote Bag crochet pattern with you. Perfect for market, beach trips, day trips, etc. It's very easy to make - worked in joined rounds using basic stitches - chain, slip stitch, single crochet and half double crochet.
The handle straps are crocheted directly onto the body so the bag is one piece with no extra seaming.
If you want to learn how to crochet this bag, I have a video tutorial for you below. Or scroll down to view the written pattern!
