New! Crocheted French Market Bag


You already know the basics of crochet and want to get better at following a pattern and completing a project. We’ve got the perfect project for you and you’ll end up with a sweet market bag (of course we stuff ours with yarn!)


What It's All About

We picked this pattern because we loved the look of this spacious market bag! But we also thought it would be a great project to help you master crochet skills such as decreasing, picking up stitches, blocking, and keeping your edges straight. This cleverly constructed cotton tote bag is both lightweight and expandable. You’re definitely going to want to make more than one!

This project is great for advanced beginner or intermediate crocheters. Following the pattern instructions, we will guide you through the body construction, blocking, adding a border and creating straps. You will use chain stitches, single crochet, treble crochet, and decrease stitches. You will also learn tips for keeping your edges straight, and how to adjust the size of your finished bag.

The registration fee includes the TwoOfWand’s French Market Bag pattern and two skeins of Berroco Pima 100 (a supersoft, 100% cotton yarn) in one of the following colourways: Soft Silver, Spring Green, Dusty Rose, Sky Blue, Scarlet Red or Medium Grey. We’ll call you to confirm your colour choice or you can email with your first and second preference. *Note: depending on registrations, we may not be able to fulfill your first colour choice. We’ll do our best, but be prepared with a second option!
