Green Grocer Bag to crochet

Green Grocer is an eco-friendly market bag to crochet in an easy lace mesh pattern. The bag is crocheted from the bottom up in one piece. No seams!

Roll it up and tuck it in your purse or car for quick trips to the store. The bag in the picture is holding all 20 skeins of yarn in the second photo.

The bag is crocheted from the bottom up. Begin with a rectangle and crochet a few rounds of dc around it to form the sides before changing to a spiraling lace pattern. Work some dc rows at the top and add the handles. Two methods (crocheted I-cord or sc) are given for making the handles.

You’ll need 250 yards of worsted weight yarn and a size H crochet hook. Use any strong, smooth textured yarn for this project. The pictured bag was made with Filatura Di Crosa Porto Cervo in color 503.

The 3 page pattern includes both written instructions and a crochet chart for the sides. The pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store.

All funds raised from pattern sales will be donated to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.
