The Granny Smith Market Bag Free Pattern and Tutorial

Goodness, what a title to a blog post!

But it does mean that the pattern is here.  Once again I’ve created a handy PDF file that you can download from here safely.

I’ve also created a separate file with a photo tutorial of the special stitch repeat that this design uses.  It’s a really simple increase method, but is convoluted and makes me scratch my head and I came up with it!

    Is there an updated version please? You’ve made mention about it being updated so was just checking to Make sure.

    Thank you

    Love this bag! I’m wondering if you have an updated version with revisions in it. I’m at row 11-12 and wondering if row 11 and row 12 are the same. When I do them both the same I loose a stitch. Is 52 the total number of stitches or 52? Lori

    • Hi Lori, I do have an updated version, let me dig it out and send it to you. I’ve been meaning to relaunch this for a year!

      Regards, Nerissa


  3. i am having an issue with the bag i got to round 6 and from there it is confusing me could you by any chance have a video showing how the pattern is work. just curious

  4. This is really cool and I love the color changes! Thanks for the pattern! 🙂 Lisa

  5. Wow that’s awesome! It looks so durable, and so handy…I’m notoriously bad about using plastic for things like market bags…such a waste! This is a much better alternative.

  6. I have a thing for mesh bags. This one looks great.

  7. Hello MissNeriss, as already mentioned on Facebook, I’ve started with the bag, but reading your pattern it seams that a piece is missing. At the chapter Straps you mention point 47 but your numbering doesn’t go further than 42? Also you mention at point 38 to repeat row 45. I can’t find a description of row 45, so please help me out?

      Let me take a look and see. I had made some big changes, so it might be a problem there. > > >

    • Hi Carla, I made a couple of small changes. When I initially wrote the pattern I had another colour block, but on the first trip to the supermarket the bag was hanging past my knees, so took some rows out, but didn’t update the pattern properly. Thanks for pointing the errors out, I’m adding the corrected version just now.

  8. Thanks for this pattern you’re awesome 🙂 x Emma

  9. Please send me the pattern for this free bag, i like that
