The June Market Tote is a free crochet tote bag pattern that’s lightweight and reusable. This market bag is great for your summer essentials or strolling through the farmer’s market.

The two handles allow this market tote to be handheld or slung over your shoulder when you would like it out of the way.

Crochet one, two or make a few to keep on hand for the grocery store. I’ve included a photo tutorial on how to get this crochet tote started.

I use one of my favorite stitches, what I call the v-arch. It’s just a v-stitch with ch 3 instead of ch 1, but I love it.

I also use it in my summer poncho, or swim coverup The Merletto Poncho.

I was a little concerned that the skinny straps would dig into my shoulders too much. But with two straps to distribute the weight, it wasn’t a problem.

You can see in these pictures the straps can be worn over the shoulder. If you would like longer straps, it’s a simple matter of adding stitches.

One thing I love about the two strap design is it’s practical to use. Just let one shoulder strap hang on while you open it up.

We have just the perfect hook for hanging tote bags. I wanted a realistic picture of it full of fruit. And here it is, full and sturdy.
