Market Tote Bag

I’ve got a quick and beginner friendly pattern for you today! Use up some stash yarn, make a quick gift, or make one for yourself! Color combos are endless! I really am in love with this tote bag!

I wanted to keep it simple, functional, and of course cute! Worked in the round and made in all one piece with minimal sewing or ends to weave (unless you add a lot of color changes) this bag fits the bill perfectly.

Here we go!

This pattern is available on Ravelry to save for later.

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

On the opposite side of you bag, using a whip st, sew the strap to the last sc row made in the round. I always double back a 2nd time to make sure its a strong seam. Weave in all ends you may have and enjoy your new market tote bag! 🙂
