Introduction

About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a unique project that’s quick and useful, you’re in the right place. Our blooming crochet market bag works up in a dedicated weekend so it’s ready for shopping when you need it.

This project will show help you hone in on your crochet diamond making skills and give you a practical way to use them. The diamonds are stitched together to for a star-shaped base that’s extra sturdy while the sides are constructed with a simple crochet mesh so they’re nice and stretchy.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as a video tutorial demonstrating how to crochet our blooming crochet market bag and, of course, written instructions to walk you through the blooming market crochet bag from start to finish.

You will find the full pattern for free here on this page.

However, B.Hooked Insiders will have online access to all B.Hooked patterns ad-free, including weekly office hours for pattern support.
