Photo Recap: Market Bag Crochet Pin-along

Our very first, Crochet Pin-along was a blast! Collecting images on a community Pinterest board is such a cool way to crochet-along a project together. We (myself, Bernat & the Jo-Ann team) loved seeing pictures of fellow crocheter’s Market Bag supplies, works-in-progress (WIPs), and finished objects (FOs). In case you missed it though, here’s a glimpse of the #joannCPAL fun.

Getting started (or “chaining on” as I like to call it)

You can see more CPAL photos on Pinterest, here. Still want to make a Market Bag? Please do! You can get the pattern here, and Cotton-ish yarn at select Jo-ann Stores and during July, on sale at Bernat.com for 25 % off (enter code: BERNATSELECT13)!

Since the CPAL is something we made up, it was definitely a learning experience. Do you have any suggestions for making our next pin-along even more successful? Please post your comments!


Psst! This bag will make great teacher gifts. Stockpile now before the school year rush begins!
