Free Crochet Pattern-- Middleton Market Bag


Middleton Market Bag


The Middleton Market Bag is finally up on the blog. If you have been here with me since last summer then you would know that I released a collection called the Middleton Collection which consisted of an array of crochet bags. 


If you are interested in more crochet bag patterns, you can purchase the premium patterns on Ravelry or Etsy.

The Middleton Market Bag was designed last year along with the other two crochet bags in the collection. However, I was suddenly offered to teach summer school at my church last year and I was never able to get it up on the blog in time for the market season.



This crochet pattern is quick and easy. It starts off looking like it would become a granny square and later starts looking more like the mesh bag that it is.

Ch 2 in the beginning counts as a stitch.

 


Pattern

 

 

MR

 

Round 1: ch 2, dc in the MR, *ch 2, 2dc cluster* repeat for a total of 4 times, ch2, slst at the top of the ch 2, turn your work (5 chsps)

 


Pull the MR closed.


 

Round 2: ch 2, 2dc in the next chsp, *dc in the next st, 3 dc in the next ch sp* repeat to the end ch sp, dc in the final st, slst into the top of the ch 2, turn your work (20)


 

Round 3: ch4 (counts as st and ch 2), 2dc in the next st, ch 2 and skip a st, *2dc in the next st, ch 2 and skip a st* dc in the last st, slst in the the 2nd ch of the ch 4, turn your work

 


Round 4: ch 2, dc in the next st, 3dc in the next ch sp, *dc in the next 2 sts, 3dc in the next ch sp* repeat to the end, slst in the top of ch 2, turn your work (50)

Round 20: hdc into each slst and ch starting from the next slst after the chsp you just made


 

Row 21: sc in the next st, *sc2tog, sc* repeat to the end


 

Row 22-26: sc around
