2K SharesAnyone else suffering from spring fever?! I was in the mood for a quick but satisfying project and I also wanted to make something that could be used this spring. My first thought was to crochet a new market tote for some warmer weather, but I’ve been contemplating a simple bucket crocheted bag pattern with bamboo handles for quite some time.? Once I dropped my daughter off at school yesterday, I headed over to JoAnn Fabrics and picked up some “Rust” colored yarn and little bamboo handles.? This bag was inspired by my Manhattan Market Tote and it’s is so super easy and fast to make! I started and finished this bag in a day, so it’s now on my short list for last minute gift making. __ The stitches are all beginner friendly and you’ll find a lot of pictures to walk you through the pattern. There’s even a link to my tutorial on the center single crochet stitch which is the stitch that is used most on the bag.? So as usual scroll on down to see the free pattern or you can find the printable PDF for sale in my Etsy shop here. __The entire bag is made while holding two strands of worsted weight yarn together. It’s also budget friendly as it only takes two skeins of yarn. Most of us have some (or A LOT of) extra worsted weight yarn around the house, don’t we? It’s a great stash buster and I think it would even look cool to hold two different colors together.? My daughter says she wants me to make her a purple one.? Personally, I’d like to make another one in a mustard yellow colorway.? __MY LATEST VIDEOSI love the color of this yarn. It’s called “Rust” but it reminds me of a nice rich camel color too, right?As I mentioned earlier, this little crocheted tote was inspired by the Manhattan Market Tote that I made a while back (here).? The fun thing about that bag is that the tight stitches at the bottom keep anything from falling out and I wanted to use that same stitch for this bag today.? There’s no need to line it since the stitch work is tight and I’m pretty sure there will be NO stretch happening with this purse.? This camel bucket bag is fairly small at just 11 inches wide and about 10.5 inches tall.? There was enough yarn leftover to make it a hair taller if you’d like (using the two skeins).? If you’ve got more than two skeins, you can make this a whole lot deeper.? Feel free to be creative with the pattern! It would even be pretty if you added some stripes. Or use natural twine to make it more of a basket look.Manhattan Market Tote Crochet Pattern – I used the same stitch along the bottom of this market bag. I love it because nothing falls out!You will find the free pattern below, or you may choose to purchase the ad-free printable PDF version from my Etsy shop HERE.
