Medium Star Market Bag Crochet Pattern. Instant digital download.
UK Terminology.

This bag is the bigger sibling of the Tiny Star Produce Bag.
It may seem average in size but it has big potential!

I know what you’re thinking - it’s just a market bag! but I see it as much more than that.

This middle of the range sized bag is big enough and strong enough to carry those few things you just ducked into the supermarket to get on the way home.
And, you’ll always have it with you because it folds up small enough to keep in your handbag, centre console of the car or hanging off your backpack!
Oh and it uses less than 100g of yarn, it’s reusable, washable and all those other good crocheted market bag things.

How’s that for potential?


Level: Easy
The pattern uses a variety of techniques, including taller stitches and joining with a stitch - though tutorial links and heaps of photos make it accessible for confident beginners.

Yarn: Approx. 180 meters (75g) of 8ply (DK) cotton yarn.
I’ve used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply cotton.
Cotton is recommended for this type of item but you can use any DK weight yarn.
You can use a different weight yarn with an appropriate hook but the finished size will vary. My testers used a variety yarns and they all worked very well.

Finished size:
~35 cm (~14 in) tall lying flat and unstretched.
~34 cm (~13 1/2 in) wide lying flat and unstretched.

Included in this 21 page PDF pattern:
50 tutorial photos
9 other photos
Instructions on how to create the pouch.
Drawstring alternative to the handles so you can use it as a large produce bag.
UK English crochet terms used throughout.
Crocheted in the round.
Clear concise written instructions with a layout designed to make it easy to follow and not lose your place.
Text only printable pages so you can print the pattern on just 1 or 2 pages reducing paper usage.
Landscape layout that looks good on a laptop, tablet or phone (simply zoom in on half the page on your smart phone to see the pattern clearly in portrait mode).
Links to 4 tutorials and photo tutorials for other special stitches used.
Tips and tricks to help you make this pattern more easily.


As a secondary school English and language teacher I have extensive experience in writing learning resources that make information more easily accessible for all. So I encourage confident beginners to give this a try. I am also happy to help if anyone is in need of any assistance with this pattern.

I struggled with this pattern but I'm still pretty new to the craft. I'll take another go at it in a few months. The pattern included a ton of resources so I'm sure I'll get it the second time around.

Love this pattern! It was super easy to follow (lots of detailed photos and also some videos) and the produce bag is functional and beautiful! I’ll be making many more to give as gifts (after I make some more for myself 😃).

I haven't made this yet, but I looked through the pattern and was pleased with the organization, level of detail, and number of helpful photos. This is the first pattern I've found that makes a market bag that can be folded up/condensed for easy travel - I have a store-bought bag like this that I love, so I'm super excited to make a bunch of similar bags from this pattern!
