We love a mesh market bag. It’s just the right tool for toting so many things, from fresh vegetables to yarn (of course!) to vacation miscellany. But sometimes, it’s not quite the right size, or the handles require more hands than we have. Here we present a pattern for a beach tote styled after the classic market tote. If you’re not quite content with the size given, the pattern includes directions for altering the size to suit you. Crochet your bag your way!

HOOK Sizes H/8 (5 mm) and J/10 (6 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

NOTIONS Yarn needle; large jewelry pendant for embellishment.

GAUGE Rnds 1–5 = 41/2” diameter with smaller hook.
