Easy Crochet Produce Bag – Large

How to crochet a produce bag? In this crochet tutorial, I show you how to crochet a produce bag that is large and perfect for lettuce or potatoes. This bag does have some weight to it, so I wouldn’t recommend it for anything that has to be weighed unless they will take the tare weight out.

This produce bag is made from 100% cotton yarn, and it is perfect for holding large or small items. The netting is spaced out perfectly so that most items will not fall through unless they are small. This crochet produce bag is a part of my 2 skein cotton challenge, where I see how many different projects I can create using the two skeins and only 2 crochet hooks. Follow along with my skein challenge:

This project is great if you are a zero-waster or aspiring to be one. These produce bags can be reused again and again and are IDEAL for farmers markets and the like. I would highly recommend these as a gift to anyone who is trying to avoid plastic bags, or anyone who is environmentally-conscience.
