Medium Star Market Bag Crochet Pattern. Instant digital download.
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?
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.
~35 cm (~14 in) tall lying flat and unstretched.
~34 cm (~13 1/2 in) wide lying flat and unstretched.

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.
Really good pattern! Clear and easy to read instructions with plenty of photos and links to help out.
This is an unusual pattern and really needs your full attention. If your stitches are just slightly off, it becomes very confusing. I printed out the pattern (23 pages), and that helped for some reason. The pattern is expertly written and includes a ton of images plus stitch count for each row. At one point the row is divided in half is unusual and for some reason gets me confused. Every good design has mirror stitches, especially for a heart so it helps to keep that in mind. There are pieces of a chart with pics. The whole thing is so interesting and works up so pretty. Bottom line, it is so worth the effort. I really LOVE this pattern. This is a brilliant designer!
I Love this pattern. I was actually able to make it. Being a a fairly newbie, I was not confident at all. lol
