SIZE:
One Size; About 12 x 14 in. (30.5 x 35.5 cm), not including handles

 

GAUGE:
One Hexagon = about 6 in. (15 cm) across. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

 

STITCH EXPLANATION:
3-dc Cl (3 double crochet cluster)
Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), (yarn over, insert hook in same st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 2 times (4 loops rem on hook) yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

How about a picture of the bag? I hesitate to start a project unless I have an idea of where it is going?

Hi dwightandpam, Thanks for letting us know! The photo should be showing up now. :) Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Totes are a firm favorite with me, I just love making them and am a firm believer that one can never have too many totes! I love the retro granny crochet look of this design. Not only is it great for using up left over yarns from previous projects, t it looks fabulous too. So do not be shy, use as many colors as you have and you will love the end result.

What a cute market bag! I never thought of making one with hexagons. I will have to give this pattern a try. If you want to keep the handle from stretching out of shape, make a row of slip stitches along each side of each strap lengthwise. It helps quite a bit.

A bright colourful market bag, ideal for use in summer. Crochet in separate pieces then join those together to make this lovely bag. We can add an extra hexagon on top to use it as flap to button it up if we need. We can reduce the height and add a zip fastener to turn the pattern into a hand bag.

I made this bag as a beginner and it was easy and fun! It came out much larger than I thought it would so next time I will use a smaller hook, like maybe an F? I did line mine or it would have been useless but it's very cute.

Don't be intimidated by this pattern! It might look complicated, but it's not at all! Just think of the colour combinations you could make this market bag in! If you're feeling adventurous, you could make a bunch of these bags and sell them at craft fairs. I know I'm always looking for unique items when I attend those events.

I have made this bag and sold it on ebay. It was so easy. I did not line mine.

I've made 3 and never thought about selling them. How much did you make? If you don't mind my asking.

This pattern looks beautiful, I was just wondering about whether it stretches when you put things in it? Or are you supposed to line it?

I lined mine but hardly ever use it. The straps do stretch tho.
