Easy Popcorn Striped Crochet Bag

Crochet this striped crochet bag up in the two colors as shown, or dig through your stash and use as many colors as you like. Either way, this pretty bag will stand out from the rest. You could also try a solid color as well!

It’s fairly easy to crochet. If you know how to do the basic crochet stitches then this might be a good pattern for you to practice the popcorn stitch.

The Finished Size

When laid flat the bag measures 15 inches by 15 inches. However, the pattern is a multiple of 2, which makes it easy to increase or decrease the size by doing more or less of the bottom increase rounds. If made a bit bigger, I’d say this would be an awesome beach bag.

The Yarn

I used Impeccable by Loops and Threads. It is a medium worsted weight yarn and works quite nicely for crochet bags. It is an acrylic yarn, which is not nearly as strong as cotton, but since you can add a bag liner, the material you crochet with really doesn’t matter that much.

How It’s Made

This easy crochet bag pattern is worked from the bottom up. The bag is worked in the rounds and the handles are worked separately and then attached. However, you can easily work the handles in one piece with the bag by following this tutorial on how to make handles.

The bottom of the bag is worked with single crochet stitches to give you a nice solid bottom.

The body of the bag is worked with the extended single crochet and chain one spaces in two rounds, followed by the popcorn and chain one spaces for the next round.

Then as already mentioned, you have a choice as to how you want to do the handles.

Once you are done crocheting, you’ll want to line this bag to give it more strength and durability. This tutorial walks you through on how to line a bag.

  1. Good morning! Thx for sharing this beautiful pattern. I have 2 skeins of Impeccable Loops and Threads on hand in a variegated color but they are only 3.5 ounce balls. I’m wondering if that would be enough to make the bag. Did you have much left when you were done? Thx again

    1. Heidi, I’m not sure, but I highly doubt that it would be enough.n:( If I remember correctly, I had used up pretty much all the brown. And the beige I had enough left over for a water bottle cozy. So you might need one extra ball. Good luck. :)

  2. Hi Rhelena, Thx for your response. I used different yarn. I posted a pic of my almost finished tote last night to Facebook group, My Hobby is Crochet, and included a link to your pattern. I asked for suggestions on how best to attach tote handles and some said rings.

    Just curious, how did you attach yours? I can how it looks in the picture but not sure what row you attached too and if you crocheted or sewed them on. I want this tote to be able to hold something that might weigh a lot so want a secure handle but don’t want it to pull the other stitching out either! thanks. I’d share a pic with you but don’t see that I can do this here.
