To follow the lace cotton crochet bag pattern you’ll need some cotton yarn. The suggested yarn is Dishie from WeCrochet.

Cotton yarn is great for crochet tote bags like this one, as it’s quite durable & can be washed.

GREAT DIY COTTON CROCHET BAG


Having a go-to crochet mesh bag pattern is so great. The cotton crochet bags is easy to bring with you when you go grocery shopping. 

It’s also environmentally friendly to have these reusable crochet market bags, less plastic & less waste.

But they can also be used for other things, such as storing and carrying any thing, for shopping.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.
