Spring is near, and warmer weather is approaching! I’m a warm weather girl for sure! I love getting out to farmer’s markets and picnics in the park in the Spring, a lovely family tradition for those warm Sunday’s. This year we will have a new bag to carry all our goodies! The Sunday Market Bag!

Who says function can’t be pretty?! The Sunday Market Bag provides a basic function of carrying your stuff and you can look cute doing it! With single use bags on their way out we might as well make something pretty to replace them, right?!
The Sunday Market Bag is worked from the bottom up and in the round. The main body is a quick one row repeat. By using the linked stitches it really helps prevent as much stretching as some stitches allow.
My amazing testers also had some gorgeous results with different colours!

Sunday Market Bag Pattern
Using J/10 (6.0mm)
Rnd 1: HDC in 2nd CH from the hook, LHDC in next 33 CHs, 2 LHDC in last CH, Continuing down the other side of the CH, LHDC in next 34 CHs, 2 LHDC in last CH, Join to 1st HDC, CH 1 (1 HDC, 71 LHDC).
Rnd 2: HDC in 1st ST, LHDC in each ST around, join to 1st HDC, CH1 (1 HDC, 71 LHDC).
Rnd 3: Repeat Rnd 2 , CH 2 after the join instead of 1 (1 HDC, 71 LHDC).
For a larger base you can do more rounds before moving on.
Rnd 4: *SK next ST, HDC in next, CH 1*, Repeat around, join with SLST in top of beginning CH, CH 2 (36 HDC).
Rnd 5 – 25: HDC in 1st HDC from previous round, CH 1, *HDC in next HDC from previous round, CH1* repeat around, join with SLST in top of beginning CH, CH 2 (36 HDC).
To make the bag taller, continue repeating previous rounds until desired height.
Rnd 26: HDC in the first HDC of previous round, *LHDC in CHSP, LHDC in next ST*, repeat around, join to 1st HDC, CH 2 (1 HDC, 71 LHDC).
Rnd 27: HDC in 1st ST, LHDC in each ST around, join to first HDC, tie off. (1 HDC, 71 LHDC).
We will tie off here to ensure we get the handles in the correct spots. With the nature of crocheting in the round not everyone will finish Rnd 27 in the same place.
Lay the bag flat with the front side facing you. Count 10 STS in from each side and place a stitch marker in the 11th ST. Flip bag and repeat on the other side. There should 16 STS between the stitch markers of each handle space.
Join yarn to right side of bag 10 STS before the marker, CH1
Rnd 28: SC in same ST as the join and next 9 STS, at 1st stitch marker CH 20, join CH with SC in the next ST after the 2nd stitch marker with SC, SC in next 19 STS, CH 20, join CH with SC after the 4th stitch marker, SC in next 9 STS, join to first SC, CH1. (40 SC, 40 CHs).
Rnd 29: Sc in each ST and CH around, join to 1st SC, CH1 (80 SC).
Rnd 30: Sc in each ST around, join to first SC, CH1 (80 SC).
Rnd 31: Sc in each ST around, join to first SC, tie off. ( 80 SC).
Weave in all ends.
Ribbon – Alternatively an icord or satin ribbon may be substituted for another pretty variation!
Using H/8 (5.0mm)
HDC in 2nd CH from hook, and each CH across, tie off and weave in ends (100 HDC).
Weave the ribbon through Rnd 25, the last row with CHSP. Tie as desired.
