I typed out the pattern for anyone who doesn't have an account or wouldn't want to sign up for one right now. This pattern was found on the cotton yarn I purchased.

You will also be able to download the patterns and print them out with an account. Most yarn companies have these type of sites with lots of free patterns and helps!!

I am going to be making another market bag and plan on taking photos this time to help any new crocheters out there that my struggle with interpreting the pattern!! Look for those in the next week or so I hope. I will add them here into the pattern itself!
let me know if there is a problem with this pattern, I have looked it over for typos, etc, but I could have missed something.
