Puff Stitch Market Bag Crochet Pattern

Puff Stitch Market Bag Crochet Pattern

This new crochet market bag is made using the puff stitch. The crochet puff stitch adds texture and shape to a classic design like this. That’s why I love it so much.

This would make an amazing grocery bag pattern to take with you to the farmers market and on errands. This crochet bag is also perfect for the beach as it’s an open stitch pattern. That means any sand you get in your bag will slip right out.

The crochet bag pattern is made using pima cotton yarn. It’s so soft and adds beautiful definition to the stitches. This crochet tote bag is made in a beautiful blue sea shade. And the base is made using a grey sand color. It’s like taking a little slice of the beach with me wherever I go.  

Free tote bag patterns are great for summer presents, or if you’re getting ready to go on a trip. Learn how to crochet a bag to store your yarn. They’re great for that. Take it from me.

This crochet market bag pattern is beautiful with the puff stitch. Take this crochet bag everywhere with you. It can hold anything, and it looks great. #CrochetPuffStitch #CrochetBag #CrochetPattern #CrochetMarketBag
