To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

Crocheted Market Bag with Adjustable Handles

We love our bags! With summer approaching, we look forward to art fairs, trips to the beach and all the fresh goodies of the farmer’s markets, to name a few joys of the season. And we NEED our bags!
This one is sturdy, expandable, adjustable and generally great for many uses.
It was a joy to develop, constructed with single crochet stitches in a circular pattern from the bottom up to two separate handles, which are easily tied together, adjusting it to your desired length. I hope you enjoy making one for yourself or a friend!
The bag is 30” in circumference and 12” tall. The handle straps are 24” long, 7” wide at the base, decreasing to 2 1/4” wide for a 7” length, then decreasing to 1 1/2” wide for an 11” length.
