Crochet Pattern: Scrap Yarn Tote

Fast Crochet Pattern: Stash Buster Market or Beach ToteWhen I finish a knit or crochet project, I just hate to throw away the leftover bits and pieces. Needless to say, that has caused my yarn sash to explode in size over the years. So, maybe it's time for a stash buster project.

I used four colors of Red Heart Super Saver Yarnand Red Heart with Love Yarn to make a scrappy market (or beach) tote. You can use up to 11 different colors of your favorite worsted weight yarn.

It's a quick and easy project made up of all sc and ch. One of my favorite features is that the handles are long enough to slip over your shoulder if you choose.

Materials

  • Approximately 370 yds/388 m of worsted weight scrap yarn in a variety of colors
  • US size H and I crochet hooks

Stitches and Abbreviations

ch - chain
sc - single crochet
sl st - slip stitch
dec - Insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and pull through one loop, insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and pull through one loop, yarn over and pull through all three loops.

Directions

This pattern is worked in continuous rounds with the right side facing. It may be helpful to mark the first stitch of each round so you don’t lose your place.
