Crochet Tote Market Bag - Easy Pattern



Hello Everyone! πŸ˜‰
Today I would like to share the Market Tote Bag crochet pattern with you. It's worked from the bottom up.The handle straps are crocheted directly onto the body so the bag is one piece with no extra seaming.
This pattern is written for those with basic crochet knowledge.To make this bag, you should be familiar with basic crochet stitches and terminology. You should also know how to crochet in the round.
I used DK weight (size 3 - light) YarnArt Macrame cord type polyester yarn and a 3,5 mm (E4) crochet hook.
You will find the written pattern and a video tutorial below.

Hope you enjoy!
Happy Crocheting! 😊
