This little piggy went to market with his Tied Together Market Bag. This little piggy stayed home and crocheted one up for himself because he thought it was very stylish and there was no way he was showing up at the market with last year’s market bag. The other three piggies went to the yarn store to buy some 24/7 cotton so they could each make one too.

Besides being right on trend with its cool tied shoulder handle (have you seen them in the stores) this market bag is practical too. The tote part of the bag is 14.5” x 13.5.” You can fit a lot of kumquats in this baby!

It’s also strong, there isn’t a seam along the bottom. The sides are constructed with single crochet, keeping the bag nice and sturdy.
As far as the aesthetics I stuck with the usual feminine but not cutesy look that you can expect from me. I achieved this by choosing the “Small Mesh” stitch. I love a good geometric stitch! Don’t you? And I continued with the geometric theme by adding stripes to the straps.

Feel free to customize this bag up! You can change the colors of the stripes, eliminate the stripes, make the straps two different colors, delete the fringe, add more fringe, tie the knot higher or lower. Make it your own! You do you! Rock that farmers market!!

Finished Measurements:
Tote not counting strap: 14.5”/37 cm wide,13.5”/34 cm tall, 2.25”/6 cm deep
