One of my favorite, favorite things about summer is hitting up the vegetable market. For me, it’s not only about the fresh produce, it’s about the experience. Perfect for taking to the vegetable market and more!
One more thing I want to mention before jumping into the pattern, is that this pattern is worked in an oblong round. As you can see in the pictures, you will be chaining a short chain, double crocheting into the end of that chain several times, then turning with your work and working right into your first oval like round.
Let’s get started!
About 5 skeins of Super Bulky, 6 weight yarn* (6 oz. or 106 yards per skein)
9.00 mm hook
Yarn needle and scissors
* You will use all of the first four skeins, but only a small amount of the fifth skein. You probably only need about 28 oz. or 450 total yards of yarn.
[4 x 4 inch square = almost 4 rows x 7 double crochet]
Working with two strands together, chain 20.
Step 1: double crochet into 3rd chain from hook, four times (count as five total double crochet into 3rd chain including 2 chain from beginning). double crochet across (16), 5 double crochet into last chain and turn with work, double crochet across underside of initial chain (16), slip stitch to top of 2 chains from beginning. (42 total stitches, including 2 beginning chain)
Step 2: chain 2, double crochet in first stitch, 2 double crochet in each of next four stitches (10, including initial chain 2). double crochet across (16), 2 double crochet in each of next five stitches (10), double crochet across (16), slip stitch into top of initial chain 2. (52 total stitches, including beginning chain 2)
Step 3: chain 2, double crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch into top of initial chain 2. (52)
Step 4-12: Repeat Step 3.
Step 13: chain 2, double crochet in next 7 double crochet, chain 22 (creating first handle), skip 10 double crochet, double crochet into next stitch. double crochet into next 15 double crochet, chain 22 (second handle), skip 10 double crochet, double crochet into next stitch. double crochet into next 7 double crochet, slip stitch into top of initial chain 2.
Step 14: chain 2, double crochet in next 7 double crochet, single crochet across first chain handle 22 times, double crochet into next double crochet, double crochet into next 15 double crochet, single crochet across second chain handle 22 times, double crochet into next double crochet, double crochet into next 7 double crochet, slip stitch into the top of initial chain 2.
Tie of ends, cut tail to 10 inches, weave in tails.
Note: You can single crochet into the chain handles, but I chose to simply single crochet around the chain strand as a whole. It’s much easier to do it this way and it makes your handle more flexible.
– When you get to the last skein, use the end covered around the outside of the skein, as well as the one nestled within the center of the skein, so that you can to interact with each other with two lengths but just one skein.
– If you can’t get extremely heavy string, try crocheting with three to four lengths of worsted weight string together to see if you can perform the same evaluate. Or try some jute! Jute can get squeaky and hard to use when you try to crochet it firmly, but if you’re try to crochet it tightly, jute would make an attractive bag.
– More knowledgeable crocheters may realize that I use one less sequence in the start of my units and series than is typically approved. I find that as long as I don’t pull my stores really limited, it tends to make awesome rectangle, even series, and a less noticeable joint. If you’re used to the conventional sequence to sew kind rate and my insurgent design routines generate you nut products ;), (chain 2 for individual crochet and hdc, sequence 3 for dual crochet, etc. ) take a moment to add a series. Do what utilizes you!
For a crocheted bag, it is really challenging things. There are just under twelve method to huge celery in there and it manages it like a champion. It can make a great collection guide carry as well.
The only factor it doesn’t are very effective for is tiny problems, like modify. It has a pretty limited, powerful incorporate, but it’s still huge and big, so consider putting a stitched material pocket within to support little products.
Happy hooking! Er… you know what I mean. 😉
