Wildrose Market Bag

Crochet this gorgeous Wildrose Market Bag that is made up of 13 granny squares stitched together in a special way! This bag is used one piece of crochet and is much tougher than strong mercerized leather and a dense strap using vest point. This bag is a perfect way to carry around your groceries, beach and travel items!

The sequel to the Wildrose Backpack that projects as it revolves around the same Wildrose Granny Square. In the example below, this gorgeous blue tone was used in the 24/7 cotton tone called “Denim”. 24/7 Cotton is a mercerized cotton (level 4) that is extremely strong and durable. It comes in a wide range of colors, and many of its original hair as it does not divide and works with the definition of fabulous spots and a nice glow.

Skill Level: Level 2 – Easy

1 PART:

To work the granny squares, you follow the same instructions as the Wildrose Granny Square with one additional Round (Round 7).

To start Round 7, chain 4 (counts as double crochet and chain 1). Next, skip 1 and double crochet 1 until the chain space. Notice that the last dc is worked in the stitch right before the chain space (this is in contrast to Round 6 where that last dc right before the chain space was skipped).

Work *2 dc, Ch 3, 2 dc* in the chain space. Then, work the next dc in the stitch immediately after the chain space as shown by the arrow below.

After working a double crochet in the stitch immediately after the chain space, continue working the same pattern of double crochets interspersed with Chain 1’s along the side.

Our granny square composed of 7 rounds is now complete! This last round adds a beautiful edging with more spaces, and it gives a delicate and lace-like look to the bag when the granny squares are seamed together.

Crochet 13 of these granny squares in total – after you have done a couple, you will have the pattern memorized!

Block all 13 granny squares to give clean and straight edges. This makes it much easier to seam the granny squares later on. In the bottom right picture, you can see the big difference blocking can make as the square on the left has been blocked while the square on the right has not.

Arrange your 13 granny squares as shown below.

Here is another visual, this time with numbers!

It is now time to seam the granny squares together in this arrangement. I found it easiest to seam the squares on a diagonal as shown below with the dotted lines. Leave extra long tails so that you can use these same tails to seam the squares on the opposite diagonal.

To seam the squares together, use the whip stitch going through both the front and back loops of both sides. Flip the granny squares upside down when seaming them together. Make sure that each chain 1 space of one granny square lines up with the chain 1 space of the other granny square. Similarly, ensure that each double crochet of one granny square lines up with the double crochet of the other granny square.

Using the long tails from seaming up the squares of one diagonal, seam up the squares on the opposite diagonal!

Now comes the exciting part! After the 13 squares have been seamed together, fold the piece upwards as shown below so that the top tips of the granny squares are lined up.

Next, fold the side granny squares in half inwards upon themselves so that the side tips are pointing towards the granny square in the middle.

Whip stitch the edges as indicated below by the dotted lines: the edges of the side granny squares and the diagonals of the bottom granny squares.

You have completed the body of the Wildrose Market Bag! Weave in the ends and get ready to crochet the strap! 

2 PART:

The 13 granny squares have been seamed together and folded in a special way to create the body of the Wildrose Market Bag. It is now time to work on the top edging and sturdy strap. To begin, start in the right corner of the top edge as indicated by the red circle. Work single crochets along all the stitches of the top edge: that is, single crochet around the top edges of both granny squares of one side, and then the top edges of both granny squares of the other side. To do so, make a slip knot. Insert your crochet hook into right corner. Add the slip knot and pull through. Yarn over and chain 1. Work a sc in same st and continue single crocheting around. At the end of the round, sl st to first sc.

Single crochets have been worked around the entire top edge.

For Round 2, we will work the waistcoat stitch/center single crochet in each stitch. Rather than inserting our crochet hook into the front and back loops, the hook is inserted directly into the middle of the V from the previous round. This creates a dense stitch with less stretching.

As you approach the tip of the first granny square, get ready to crochet the first strap. Chain 85 and join to the tip of the second granny square with a single crochet (be careful not to twist the chain). Continue working the waistcoat stitch around.close

Once you approach the top tip of the first granny square of the other side, chain 85 to create the second strap. Join to the top tip of the second granny square with another single crochet, once again being careful not to twist the chain. Work the waistcoat stitch until the end of the round.

For Round 3, continue working the waistcoat stitch in the stitches around the granny squares. Single crochet into the chain stitches of the strap as you begin to increase the thickness of the straps.

For Round 4, work the waistcoat stitch for the entire round, including along both straps. Once you are finished Round 4, fasten off and weave in your ends.

Now let’s work on the crochet of the inner strap and immersion of the V to increase the thickness and make the straps even more resistant. Repeat the process described below on both sides. To begin, add the wire to the V-dip, as indicated by the red circle shown below. To do this, make a sliding knot and insert your crochet needle into the V dunk. Add the sliding knot and pull it out. Long wire, chain 1, work a low at the same point. Work the vest point around.

As you approach the sides of the top edging, single crochet across.

As you approach the strap, continue working along the underside by inserting you hook into the upside down V underneath the horizontal bars as shown below.

When you are approaching the end of the round, skip the last single crochet to prevent bunching and slip stitch to the first single crochet to close off the round.

Work one more round building up the thickness of the inner V and the underside of the strap using waistcoat stitches. When one side is done, fasten off and weave in your ends. Repeat the above steps for the second side.

Your Wildrose Market Bag is now complete! You can block your finished bag with steam to ensure everything is smooth and flat, and add an ultraleather garment tag as a beautiful finishing touch!

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for novice blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
