Morocco Market Bag Crochet Pattern

The Morocco Market Bag Crochet Pattern has such a fun design that’s created with a simple V stitch! The stitching looks complicated, but if you know how to double crochet then you can make this bag. It’s all about the stitch placement with this texture!

This bag uses a stitch called the Moroccan Tile Stitch and it creates this woven-like texture. I was so surprised to learn that it uses a simple V stitch throughout! I used 3 colors for the stripes (other than my main color). I think a main color and a self-striping yarn would work perfectly as well. The yarn I used to I Love this Cotton Yarn from Hobby Lobby. It’s a durable and soft cotton that comes in many colors. Some other great cotton yarn choices are WeCrochet Dishie and Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream. I do recommend using a cotton yarn for market bags.

  1. I just found your site yesterday when looking for more hat patterns to crochet for our local mission and crisis pregnancy center this winter, and am so very excited! You have an amazing selection of fun, interesting and stylish hats and I’m itching to make several of them. Just wanted to say thanks for making your talent available! You really have a marvelous variety of ones that aren’t super complicated, and your example pictures are nice and clear. I’m working my way backward though your blog and bookmarking as I go. 🙂

  2. Question. On the second round of row 10 and going forward on the repeat, do you vstitch in color A round or color B round??
