Marrakech Market Bag | Free Crochet Pattern

Marrakech Market Bag | Free Crochet Pattern


Crochet bags are definitely my thing. I can’t tell you how many I’ve crocheted — round, square, granny squares, drawstring, totes, beach bags, etc. I’ve made a few versions of a market bag as well but this is the first I’ve personally designed.

I wanted to combine my first market bag design with the latest crochet stitch I learned, the Solomon’s Knot. (Have you ever learned to crochet Solomon’s Knot material? Take a look at my tutorial, How to Crochet the Solomon’s Knot, and see how easy it is to learn!)

I mean, it’s lacy so why not use it for a market bag?

After a few false starts I got going full force on what is now the Marrakech Market Bag. I adore the way it turned out. So simple but with a unique stitch like the Solomon’s Knot.

Combining a single crochet base with a Solomon’s Knot body might seem hard, and I was ready for some math hurdles to jump, but it happily wasn’t at all. The Solomon’s Knot pattern works like a breeze and jumping back into single crochet for the finish and handles is smooth as well.

So why not give it a try? The Marrakech Market Bag holds balls of yarn beautifully, so much so that I’m thinking of making it my crochet-on-the-go bag. ‘Course, I can think of a number of things that you could use it for — beach or vacation trips for holding smaller things,  carry-along work lunches, you name it.

What will you do with yours?

Notes

Work your solomon’s knots very small for a denser pattern. I recommend using a source of reference like a ruler or this View Sizer from Knit Picks to keep track of them.

I recommend a loop of about 1/4″. See tutorial, How to Crochet the Solomon’s Knot for more advice!
