Crochet Bag Pattern – Simple Seeded Lace

If you like the simple seeded lace collection, then you will enjoy this crochet bag pattern, which is worked up in the same stitch. The stitch pattern is pretty, yet super easy and mindless to work on.

You can customize the bag by choosing different colors for your yarn. I chose an ombre to match the summer, but a solid color would look just as nice. Or, use up a few leftovers by adding a few stripes! The possibilities in terms of colors are endless.

Another option is to line your bag. You can add a simple liner with pockets to hold your small items. Then to make it extra secure a zipper at the top is always nice too. This bag liner tutorial shows you how.

The Size

The finished measurement when laid flat is approximately 16″ wide by 12″ high, not including the handles. You can easily adjust that size as needed by doing more or less increase rounds for the base.

The handles too, are super easy to adjust in any number of chains. As for the placement, if you made changes to the size, this tutorial on how to make bag handles explains how to do that.

The Yarn

I chose Bernat Handicrafter Cotton for a nice sturdy bag. The color is called By the Sea, and basically has all the colors you’d normally find close to the lake. It is so perfect for the summer months, but could also be used throughout the seasons if you wanted to.

Choose your favorite yarn and hook size. Although cotton is one of the strongest yarns, it doesn’t have to be cotton if you plan on lining the bag with a strong liner.

The Stitch Pattern

The simple seeded lace is simply a round of eyelets made with the half double crochet stitch and a chain one space. Then the next round is worked with the seed stitch, which is the single crochet and double crochet, and it is worked into the half double stitch in the round below.

It is super easy and mindless, making it great for relaxing when you need a break from everything else.

Handles

  • Lay the bag flat to place your markers for the handles. Count over 18 sts on the sides of the bag and place stitch marker in 19th stitch. Counting the stitch markers, you should have 20 sts marked off in the middle. Do the same on the other side. Stitch markers should align on each side of the bag. Do not crochet into the 20 stitches in the middle.
  • Note: To keep things even, I like to crochet into the back bumps of the chains made for the handles.
  • Rnd 41: Ch 1, sc in same st as join and into each st up to marked st, *loosely ch 60 (or any number depending on how long or short you want the handles), sk the 20 sts marked off in the middle*, sc in next 36 sts; rep from * to * once; then sc in remaining sts; join with sl st in first sc.
