Large Market Tote Crochet Pattern

 If you have just a few hours, you can complete this simple tote bag crochet pattern from Daisy Cottage Designs. This free crochet design is just the perfect size for toting to the farmer's market or the beach this summer. Add a cute flower to embellish this homemade tote bag. It's also perfect for your project bag.
Ever since I posted the free crochet pattern for this children’s market tote on my blog back in August of 2012, I’ve been getting requests for an adult-size pattern. I’ve sent email after email explaining how one could make it bigger; I just hadn’t had time to make one, photograph it, and post it to the blog. Until now.
This original bag has been one of the most-viewed patterns on my website. It’s been featured on All Free Crochet and other websites. In all honesty, I think any success I’ve had at this blogging “thing” truly started after I posted that pattern. I’m super excited to finally offer this in another, larger size; I hope you all enjoy it just as much as you did the first.
Materials: 
- approximately 8 oz of worsted weight, cotton yarn
- Flower for embellishing (I used a flower made from this pattern)
- Safety pin for marking stitches
Pattern Notes: 
- This pattern is worked in rounds through round 6; after that, you’ll be working in spiral. This means you will not slip stitch or chain between rows. There are photos showing how to do this in the smaller size pattern.
– The ch 2 at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch when working the body of the bag. The ch 2 does count as a stitch when working on the handles.

Adult-Sized Market Tote
 
Chain 3.
Round 1: 12 dc into the first ch. Sl st to the top of the first dc. Ch 2. (12)
Round 2: 2 dc in each stitch around. Sl st to the top of the first dc. Ch 2. (24)
Round 3: *2 dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next* around. Sl st to the top of the first dc. Ch 2. (36)
Round 4: *2 dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next 2 stitches* around. Sl st to the top of the first dc. Ch 2 (48)
Round 5: *2 dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next 3 stitches* around. Sl st to the top of the first dc. Ch 2. (60)
Round 6: *2 dc in the first stitch, 1 dc in the next 4 stitches* around. Sl st to the top of the first dc.(72)
Beginning on round 7, you will be working in spiral. You will not join at the end of each round. Mark the first stitch of each round with a safety pin so you don’t lose your spot.
Round 7: Ch 3 (counts as first dc and chain 1). *dc, ch 1 in the next stitch* around until you get to the last stitch. In the last stitch, hdc, ch 1. At this point, you would normally slip stitch and chain. Since we’re working in spiral, you will work in the first chain 1 space you made at the beginning of this round. (72 dc, 72 ch 1 spaces)
Round 8: hdc, ch 1 in the first chain 1 space. *dc, ch 1* in each chain 1 space.
Rounds 9-32: *dc, ch 1* in each ch 1 space.
Round 33: dc in each ch 1 space.
Round 34: dc between each dc of the previous row. Sl st to the first dc. Do not cut yarn. Continue and work the first half of your handle.
You will now be working your handles. Remember, the ch 2 does count as a stitch now.

Row 1: ch 2, dc in the next 12 stitches. (13)
Row 2: ch 2, dc2tog, dc2tog, dc in the next 6 stitches. dc2tog. (10)
Row 3: ch 2, dc2tog, dc in the next 5 stitches, dc 2 tog. (8)
Rows 4-22: ch 2, dc in the next 7 stitches. (8)

Skip 23 stitches. Join yarn with a sl st and work the second half of your handle the same way you did the last. Single crochet the halves of your handle together and weave ends.

  5. I was excited to make this bag and it has come out great. I made it in a bright lime green yarn and it is so cute. One edit though. I was SO confused when it came to making the handles. This pattern doesnt say to cut the yarn when finished with the first side! I went back to the youth/smaller version to find it.

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this bag free pattern.I made the little one,because i wanted to see how simple is it,and its very-very simple.Tomorrow Im gonna try adult size :)

  7. I have followed the number of stitches exactly at row 7 and am now passed row 14 and it still is lying flat the edges are not working up the way sides would. Any suggestions? I am at a total loss as to what I did.

  8. i&#39;m making  this bag and it&#39;s beautiful thank you. but i&#39;m making it with a base. at r8 i work it in front loop only so it sets flat an street up :)

  9. For the handle I continued until the end and increase my stitch when joining on the opposite end. It turned out great. Thanks for sharing!
