This crochet bag made of 100% cotton yarn is sustainable and at the same time it’s looking very chic. With this bag you want to go shopping every day. It also makes a great (last minute) gift!

As it weighs less than 150 grams it’s an ideal market bag to put in your pocket so you’ll never need to use a plastic bag again. Because let’s be honest, plastic bags are just not done anymore.

The pattern is suitable for beginner crocheters. The most important stitches are the single crochet, double crochet and chain stitch.

Yarn Selection: Drops Muskat

As it is one of my favourite yarns for market bags, and as many times before, I used Drops Muskat. This is a stunning mercerized Egyptian cotton. It has a glorious sheen and is super strong and durable. It comes in 40 different fabulous shades and, I’m so grateful, it’s machine washable. By washing it, you can use the bag again and again! On top of that, cotton is a natural product and completely biodegradable. Ergo, this is the most sustainable market bag on the block!

Drops Muskat holds up really well and it gives great stitch definition. I think you can see why this is my go to yarn when I’m designing crochet bags!

If you decide to use a different yarn, I would still recommend using a 100% cotton one. Cotton is bio-degradable, it’s strong and sturdy and gives good stitch definition. You can also check for some yarn substitutions.
