Grab & Go Market or Beach Bag Crochet Pattern by Crochet For You.

I have always wanted to design a simple market bag that can be easy and fast to crochet. So I started to crochet this market bag with a new crochet stitch pattern.

And it’s also great for taking to the beach! As you can see, the stitch pattern in this bag just likes granny stitch in rows but it’s not like that.

Crocheting dc in ch-sp and fpdc in that dc previously crocheted, create such beautiful stitch pattern and it’s stretchy enough and lightweight. I’m so happy with the final result.
