The Violet Free Market Tote Crochet Pattern

Crochet the Violet Market Tote in your favorite colors and create a beautiful bag that’s reusable, machine washable and ready for the market or a day out. Make a few for yourself, or gift these to friends.

Combining function and beauty makes this mama happy. I can never seem to have enough tote bags. Whether they’re filled with groceries, yarn or kids’ activities having plenty on hand is a must in our house.

With back to school looming, my mama brain is already trying to decide what to bring that will keep the youngest busy while my older boys are at practice. Which usually means that don’t use what I bring, unless it’s snacks those are never left over.

Notes

  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, here’s my favorite.
  2. Bag is worked in the round, joining each round with a sl st to the first st.
