Stormy days are for crocheting – especially this Stormy Day Market Bag Crochet Pattern!

Occasionally I love a good storm! And I’m not going to lie, the main reason why I love them is that they are great for crocheting! I designed these market bags over the winter and while I was working on this one in particular, it was storming outside! It was a snow and rain mix with a lot of wind, the kind you really don’t want to be caught out in. The clouds were grey, and so was my yarn! I was quite content to simply sit inside and crochet.

The Market Bag Crochet Along:

Welcome to week two of the Marvellous Market Bag crochet along! If this is your first time hearing about the market bag crochet along I invite you to check out this introductory post: The 2024 Marvellous Market Bag crochet along. It will have all the details.

As mentioned, this is week two. Last week we had the pleasure of learning how to crochet the Sweetheart Market Bag – and there are so many wonderful pictures of your finished bags in the Rich Textures Crochet Community group on Facebook. If you have not check them out, I highly recommend it!

The construction and materials:

As are all the bags in this crochet along, the Stormy Day market bag is worked in rounds from the bottom up. Once again you will be working easy stitches like single crochet and double crochet. You will find that this bag works up quickly! I love its filet crochet design.

For this crochet market bag I used a worsted weight 100% cotton yarn called 24/7 by Lion Brand Yarn. I really love using cotton for market bags. Not only is it available in a wide range of colours, but it is also durable and holds its shape well, even when under a lot of stress!

The colour of yarn shown in the photos is Silver and you are going to need approximately two and a half balls, or 500 yards. You will also need a 4.00 mm (G/6) crochet hook. In the free video tutorial below you will see me using a Clover Soft Touch Crochet Hook.

PDF Copies are also Available:

The crochet pattern for this market bag will be written out in full below and will forever remain free when viewed here on Rich Textures Crochet, and the written instruction will be followed by a video tutorial.  However if you would like to add this pattern to your library or purchase an ad free PDF, you may do so from either my Etsy or Ravelry Shop linked below:
