Bare Classic Market Bag FREE Crochet Pattern

Bare Classic Market Bag FREE Crochet Pattern

Bare Organic Classic Market Bag FREE Crochet Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

The classic market bag - seamless, in the round, and with only one ball of yarn. Be So Bare Yarn is 100% organic cotton, completely made in the USA. The addition of slipped stitches around the top edge and straps ensures sturdy and long lasting durability. The decorative picots in the classic mesh pattern adds a touch of romantic whimsy to this otherwise super functional and environmentally responsible project.

What you will need:
1 ball Be So Bare Yarn; 100% organic, completely USA made cotton; 315 yards per 4oz hank; #2 sport weight; undyed.
G/6 (4mm) crochet hook

Gauge: 4st/2 rows = 4" in double crochet, but gauge is not critical for this project

Finished size: 15" wide x 17" tall, 9" handle drop (UNSTRETCHED)
NOTE: the nature of this mesh fabric has a lot of stretch to it. You will be amazed at how much you could fit into this bag!

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
xoxo, Kristin
