Rnd 8 - 22: *ch 3 sc into next ch 3 sp; join with sc in first ch3 sp repeat from * around
Rnd 23: ch 2; hdc in next ch 3 sp, hdc in next sc *hdc in next ch3 sp, hdc in next sc; repeat from * around, join with slst to top of ch2
Rnd 24: ch 2; hdc in each hdc around, join with slst to top of ch 2
Rnd 25: ch 1; sc in each hdc around, join with slst to first sc, ch 2
DO NOT FINISH OFF
Strap:
NOTE: strap is worked in rows
Row 26: ch 2; hdc in next 6 sts; turn
Row 27: ch 2; hdc in next 6 hdc; tun
Continue in this pattern until strap measures approx 19"
Fasten off, leaving a 6" tail
Sew strap to opposite side of bag with tail and yarn needle
Pocket:
Make a ch measuring approx 7" Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; turn
Row 1: Ch 2; hdc in each hdc across; turn
Row 2: Ch 2; hdc in each hdc across; turn
Continue in this pattern until piece measures approx 5" long
Fasten off, leaving tail long enough for sewing
To figure out placement of pocket,

Lay bag flat, as pictured:

Fold sides under the bag, so I looks like this:
[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v728/krytaltheclown/shoppingbagdiagram2.jpg[/IMG]

Sew Pocket in place pictured along the red lines, leaving the blue open:
[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v728/krytaltheclown/shoppingbagdiagram3.jpg[/IMG]

and Voila! you have a foldable market bag! To fold bag into pocket, simply lay bag down as in the first picture, fold down the strap, fold under the sides as in the second pic, fold that in half short ways, and flip the pocket inside out! Hope this helps some people!

I have been waiting for this pattern. I have a ton of WIPS but I think I might just slip this in... for the good of the environment of course ;)

Thanks for sharing the pattern!

tris4crochet pointed out to me that the body should be much longer, so I fixed that in my original post. Thanks tris!
