This one has a lot of obvious room for improvement. And it will be improved.

This one is all Tunisian crochet in the round.
I used my Denise hooks…
and a variety of sizes for the forward hook, to make the rows taller and the fabric thinner at the bag’s mid-height…
I also used a little starter square at the bottom,
then crocheted to its edges to start the in-the-round crochet…
This project turned out well.
This is another market bag, of large size and with an improvement.
I’ve used thin rayon crochet yarn to give it thin, stretchy walls.
The improvement is that I doubled the yarn so that the bottom, top, and loops are made with a thicker, plusher fabric. This worked out well.
Pictures of bag, empty and loaded:
This time I left off the zipper, which seemed silly, and did it all in Tunisian crochet.
It does not stretch as long, without the knit part. On the other hand, I need to find a better-looking Tunisian lacy stitch.
I really like the mercerized cotton crochet yarn for this type of bag. The bright lime green yarn is something else and perhaps not as successful.
It’s not perfect, but at least it’s finally done.
I made it with baby yarn (acrylic/nylon), which was a pain and may have been a mistake.
I’m mulling over improvements before I start the next one.
