Free Crochet Produce Bag Pattern

Difficulty Level

🧶- Beginner

Yarn and Tools

  • Yarn: Drops Cotton Light – 1 skein
  • Crochet Hook – 3.5 mm
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle

Abbreviations

Measurements

The finished piece was measured laying flat, very slightly stretched.

  • width: ~ 15 cm / 5.9 inches
  • length: ~ 19 cm / 7.5 inches

Notes

  • This pattern uses US Terms.
  • This mesh crochet produce bag is very stretchable, so try out its size as you go. You may want to add or omit a couple of rounds to make it work for you.
  • To make the bag wider, change the number of foundation chain stitches, but keep it a multiple of 2.
  • If you want to alter the height of the bag, change the number of round 4 repeats, but remember that it will stretch.
  • Use cotton yarn for this project because it’s sturdy enough to hold the shape. Although it’s possible to make it with wool, for example, it may stretch too much.
