Large Plastic Market Bag

September 15, 2007 26 comments

This market bag was crocheted using a large plastic Q crochet hook. It’s my first project crocheting with plastic bag yarn aka plarn and using the extra large plastic hook. I must say that it makes my bag much lighter and the stitches more airy. I also didn’t use as many plastic bags as I normally do to finish the project. The bag is still very strong. As I have shown below with a load of groceries, it stretches nicely to accommodate my purchases.

Here is my market bag filled from a grocery store trip!

So check out the free pattern below and as always — enjoy!
