Field of Diamonds Market Bag:

Are you looking for a stylish, practical and presentable crochet market bag? This delicate diamond-shaped stitch pattern made up of simple chains and single crochet (US) is just the ticket. The bag is constructed to make the most of the fabric created with this stitch pattern, and incorporates a great amount of stretch, so this bag can hold a surprisingly large amount. Great for a trip to the beach, the grocery store or the shopping centre, my hope is that you will love this pattern and want to make many of them, in all of your favourite colours & yarns! I believe an eco-friendly, handcrafted market bag also makes a great gift for the loved ones in your life, whether they are ‘into’ crochet or not! There’s something I really love about creating useful things that are also beautiful. Enjoy your stitching.

The pattern is available as separate PDFs with US or UK terminology.

This pattern contains Photos where needed, and has direct links to Crochet Road YouTube video tutorials made especially for this Market Bag.

Yarn Used for sample/s:
Scheepjes Catona: 100% Mercerised Cotton, 50g/1.75oz; 125m/136yds Fine #2 sport weight (4-5 ply) yarn, 4 x 50g skeins
Catona is available in 109 colours, and is a fantastic yarn to use for this pattern, it’s one of my all-time favourite cottons.

Other suitable alternatives:
Yarn & Colours Must-Have Cotton Schachenmayr Catania
Katia Capri
Kartopu Organica
Fibra Natura Luxor (used 3 x 50g balls, 3.25mm hook. Makes a smaller bag)
Sirdar Cotton DK (used 2 x 100g balls, 3.5mm hook. Makes a larger size than listed) Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton DK
Linen and linen/cotton blends are also suitable fibre substitutes.
Hobbii Rainbow cotton (used 3 x 50g balls, 3mm hook, makes a smaller bag)
Nurturing Fibres Eco-Cotton (used 4 x 50g, 3.5mm hook. Makes a larger bag)
Patons 100% Cotton
Patons Cotton Blend
Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton
Similar 100% cotton in a Fine #2 Sport yarn, or a Light #3 DK yarn would also work quite well with this pattern. Adjust your hook size accordingly. Buy an extra ball of yarn if you’re not sure!
