Thrsday To-Do | Crochet Market Tote

It’s Farmer’s Market season! To be honest, here in France it is always market season, we have a twice weekly market in my town, but this tropical  island girl can’t handle going during winter. HA! But now that the weather is glorious, I am looking forward to our weekly trips on Saturday mornings.

So it’s the perfect time to whip up some market totes and I tried this pattern from The Stitchin’ Mommy.

The pattern was really easy to follow. Definitely one to do in front of the TV. Instead of using different colours of yarn, I used some self-striping yarn instead, which gave my tote an interesting effect!

Here’s the strap in progress

 

My bag came out super humongous though! I probably should pay more attention to things like gauge, but I’m just too lazy to be honest.

Because it is totally gaping at the top, I decided to make a string to tie it shut. I made a long chain, then did single crochet all along the length, which I then wove through the stitches

Definitely made a difference.

I’m worried the strap will be too stretchy though, especially for carrying fruit and veg, so I’ll reinforce it with some kind of fabric. Most likely felt.

Don’t forget to check out and try this pattern. It’s great for beginners and advanced hookers.
