Here is the free crochet pattern for the kid version of my popular Boho Market Bag!  My granddaughter fell in love with my original version of this market bag.

Boho Market Bag Kid Size!

She loves it and I am sure there are other girls out there that would love it as well!  This bag is made with the Caron Cotton Cakes which I love.  The stitch definition with this yarn is really incredible!  I have been having trouble finding them lately in my local Michael’s stores, however.  I understand from the company that they will be making a comeback next spring due to their popularity.  I don’t believe they have been able to keep up with demand.  So, good news for those of us that jumped on the Cotton Cakes bandwagon.  Got to tell you I was pretty worried they were going to disappear so I have been buying it whenever I come across it.

I believe this pattern could easily be made by a beginning crocheter and it would be pretty quick to whip up as well.  This is another project that is easily transportable for those of you like me that seemingly have a crochet hook permanently attached to their hand.

For those of you that prefer an ad free version you can find it for a small fee on Ravelry here.

Chain 3 counts as first st at beginning of row
