Mesh Market Bag Crochet Pattern {Free}

I am really big on being good to our planet. I don’t like to use the plastic bags from the store. I would rather take my own than try to figure out what to do with all those leftover bags. Not to mention, when you throw them away they sit in a landfill. When I was first learning to crochet I thought bags would be a good step up from hats, especially since they are also worked in the round. It just made sense. It took me a few years, but I finally perfected the bag pattern. This is a partially mesh market bag crochet pattern.
