CLOUDBERRY Market Tote is based on a vintage
1970s crochet stitch.
1970s crochet stitch.
This filet-style stitch appeared mainly in garment design
using only one colour.
I love this crochet stitch, it is easy and quick, and when you add colour to each row, you are rewarded with a fantastic looking piece of fabric, and what better way to display this filet-style stitch than incorporating it into an easy care and easy wear market tote.
I have called this market tote pattern Cloudberry because the colours remind me of a small orange fruit, which goes by that name. It can sometimes be found in Scotland and Wales, however it is very well-known in Scandinavian countries, Russia, Canada and Alaska. It grows naturally in the more northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere and can withstand cold temperatures as low as -40C. What is most memorable to me are the colours of this raspberry-like fruit, and the very tasty jam which can be made with them.
CLOUDBERRY Market Tote Crochet Bag PATTERN includes written instructions for a bag with approx. circumference 30in (76cm); 17in (43cm) deep; strap 23in (58cm). The pattern includes accompanying photographs at the end of the written instructions.
