Vegetable Market Bag Free Crochet Pattern

The Vegetable Market Bag is an easy to crochet cotton market bag with the new Carrot Stitch worked into the base. This free crochet pattern works with my Carrot Stitch Photo and Video Tutorial to show you how to make this bag.

I love how quick this market bag works up with just a little extra vegetable detail to really make it stand out. For this bag, I used a variety of cotton yarn that I had on hand. In my stash, I have a wide color selection of Peaches and Cream, Sugar and Cream and Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie in my stash. I am afraid I was not able to find out which yarn the tan color is from.

    This is absolutely adorable! I pinned it so I can (hopefully) find it later when I want to make it. I can definitely see making a bunch of these, 1 (or 2!) for myself and some for friends. Happy Easter!

    So this is worked like a flat piece except each row is connect to the beginning and not going in the same direction each round.

      The last stitch is joined by a slip stitch to the first stitch in each round. You will turn at the beginning of each row, so that you are working in the opposite directions compared to the previous row. Let me know if that clarifies it.

    Love this market bag! I am trying to make it. On round 13 : chain 4, change to orange. Do you mean change to orange when you SLST then chain 4 to start the carrot? I am stuck😫

    1. Lindsey

      April 26, 2019 at 3:47 am

      You can do either. I Chained 3 and changed my yarn on the fourth chain, but you can just as easily change the yarn color during the slst and chain up 4. Both ways will work.

        Thank you! All your patterns are beautiful. The only problem I have is there isn’t enough of me to make them as much as I would like😃

    I’d really like to see a video tutorial with all of your patterns. I’m an audio-visual learner. Perhaps there are others that follow you that have a similar learning style and would benefit from hearing and seeing what you’re doing. If you’ve already done a video tutorial for the Vegetable Market Bag, could you please direct me to your youtube account? Thanks for sharing the pattern.

      Hi Theresa,
      I do have a youtube channel. I have been making it a goal to make videos for all my new patterns. It will take a little time to swing back and make videos for the old patterns as well. There is a video for making the carrot stitch that can be found here: https://youtu.be/FbgdaHSTKss . I hope that helps.
