Welcome to week three of the Marvellous Market Bag crochet along where we will learn how to crochet the Sunny Day Market Bag.

This wonderful crochet market bag will hopefully bring a little sunshine into your life! It is an easy to work crochet pattern that features a grid-like appearance. The pattern is easy to work using double crochet, chain stitches and single crochet.

The previous two crochet market bag patterns were also worked in these basic crochet stitches however in a filet crochet technique. The Sunny Day Market bag will throw in some double crochet v-stitches. They make it so pretty!

The Marvellous Market Bag Crochet Along:

Is this your first time hearing about the Marvellous Market Bag crochet along? Don’t worry! Although this is the third we of the live event, there is still lots of time to catch up. Each of the bags are worked all as one piece, from the bottom to the continuous handles. They take about four to six hours each to make and the patterns will remain available here, on YouTube and in my shops long after the crochet along event is finished.

For more information about the crochet along, check out the Introduction Post: An Introduction to the Marvellous Market Bag Crochet Along

Week One: The Sweetheart Market Bag Crochet Pattern

Week Two: The Stormy Day Market Bag Crochet Pattern

The Materials:

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 Lemon 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:
