Spring is just around the corner, and we’re planning to spring ahead with our crafting. Your local farmers market will be back in action soon with lots of fresh produce and baked goods, time to get ready! We’ve got two market tote crochet kits to help you carry all of those delicious local goodies home, in a reusable and stylish way.
The spring season brings with it a chance to indulge in the freshest of foods. We can all agree that supporting your local farmers market is wonderful, but why not take it a step further and go green while you do it? Making your own farmers market tote is a an eco-friendly way to cut down on the plastic bags that we sometimes overuse. Rather than springing for a reusable bag at your neighborhood grocery store, grab a skein for the same price and get crafting!
First up, we’ve got the Manhattan Market Tote Crochet Kit by designer Mama in a Stitch for our crocheters. This Level 2+ Easy Beginner crochet pattern works up beautifully with just three skeins of Heartland Thick & Quick yarn. With a sturdy bottom, it is the ideal bag for carrying heavier produce all the while sporting a stylish tassel for an extra bit of fun!
Skill Level: Level 2 – Easy (Beginner+)
Yarn: Heartland Thick & Quick
The French Market Tote Crochet Kit by designer Two of Wands uses our 24/7 Cotton, which is 100% Mercerized Cotton. You’ll need three skeins of it for this Level 3 Intermediate pattern. The smooth cotton yarn provides a soft texture making the tote easy to hold, carrying your scrumptious goods.
Skill Level: Level 3 – Intermediate
Yarn: 24/7 Cotton
We hope you’re looking forward to warmer weather, fun outdoor outings like the local market, and maybe trying a new recipe with a new fruit or veggie that caught your eye. Spring ahead by planning to make your own reusable tote, and enjoy all season long.
