Why We Love This Filet Crochet Market Bag so Much

Summer is here, and our filet crochet Market Bag kit will be needed in your day-to-day more than you might imagine. At its core, it is a item of practicality as much as it is a fun crochet project. This is your go-to for the farmer’s market, as it seems meant to carry a baguette, not to mention a hefty stash of greens.

As long as you’re running errands, you might want to hit the thrift store to feed a clothes Jones. And this is why you need two of these market bags. One for the food, and one for the three gently used t-shirts you couldn’t live without.

Once done running around, you have those ubiquitous summer plans that involve water. This bag has “take me to your nearest water attraction” written all over it. Towels, sunscreen, your favorite paperback, a hat that is packable – and you’re off!

I need not go on, as Editor of Interweave Crochet Sara Dudek, has you covered. In these three blogs, she offers the multiple ways you are able to modify the design, and encourages you to build your crochet toolbox by practicing filet crochet.

I love crochet market bags with filet crochet and all the endless design possibilities they offer.
