Wow, this Sunrise Market Tote is so pretty to look at! I have to say, maker beware. Crocheted market bags are notorious for stretching out really far and not being able to hold any kind of weight. There are a few things you can do to fix that. First thing is to add a fabric liner of some sort. Second thing is to make the handle something other then a crocheted handle- buy a leather handle or braid your own with simple strips of faux leather. Third thing is to use a cotton yarn and/or double up on your strands. I have learned all these things through trial and error. I hope I have helped at least one person!

dianazabloudil 724 1705 posed a very good question. I would like to go a step further with the eco friendly idea and make some of my own bags. Does the type of yarn you select make a difference when the bag is used?

I made this tote, and I love the style and size HOWEVER, I also used Worsted Weight size 4 yarn as instructed, and I can't use this bag for anything that has any sort of weight to it. I went to the market and had maybe 3 or 4 lbs of groceries, and I had to hold it in my arms it stretched way down to the floor and the handles stretched way out. I haven't made a tote before, but would cotton yarn hold up better for something like this?

I have heard, but haven't tried, that some people use the plastic bags and cut them a certain way and use that to crochet a bag.

Thank you for this lovely pattern. I gave up on those grocery store plastic bags long ago. I need to replace many of my 'reusable' environmentally friendly bags and this one will do the job nicely. It looks rather quick to work up. Dont you just love Hobby Lobby yarns? I know that I do.

This is so cute and useful you wouldn't even need to use scrap yarn if you didn't want to. It is just as beautiful as it is functional.

The colors on this Sunrise Market Crochet Tote are simply gorgeous. The type of yarn used - I Love This Yarn - Sunrise Sky has such a beautiful flow as the colors change. The crochet directions seem pretty easy enough and only two skeins of yarn to complete. This may be my next project.

I have so many left over bits and pieces of yarns that are going to be just great for this tote! Perhaps I will even use some fabric scraps to give it that really rustic look. Although I really love the yarn used in the pattern so now I am in two minds about whether to use scraps or not, lol. Whichever I choose this tote is perfect for market shopping and I will try to post a pic once it is done!

Wow. What a color combination. Good idea, bag is so classy. I will pin this bag. I think this calls for a special yarn. something thicker than the usual kind used for tops and cowls.
