My free crochet tote bag patterns feature easy stitches and fun colors for summer.

Crochet market tote patterns are great for crocheting with cotton yarn in the warmer months. These crochet tote bags make fabulous gifts for teachers, neighbors, friends or family with summer birthdays to celebrate.

Many of these crochet tote patterns features some of my favorite cotton yarns. You are also welcome to use acrylic yarn, as I also have in a some of these crochet bag patterns.

These patterns features #4 medium worsted weight yarn. Some of these yarns are self striping yarn. So they do the color work for you.

On other bag patterns I choose the colors and striping combinations. And on yet others they are in a solid color.

Crocheting with cotton yarn can be challenging for some. I favor the yarns that are blends-adding nylon or polyester for a bit of strength and smoothness.

I always keep my tension loose when working with cotton. My Clover Amours and Furls Odyssey Hooks are my preferred choices when working with cotton. These hooks glide effortlessly, even in cotton yarn.
