ESC Bag Crochet Pattern

This ESC bag crochet pattern is the first of my designs that I have not actually crocheted. Somehow I feel like I missed out on this one as I love to work on mindless patterns such as this one. But not having to crochet it helped save me a lot of time.

I love the colors, as chosen by Ashley Marie, as well as the color sequence! It’s beautiful and perfect for anyone who loves their fashion.

ESC Bag or Purse

It’s a nice size bag for small gifts, as a book bag, or for use as a purse. And believe it or not, crocheted can be quite durable as well!

The Size

When laid flat this bag measures approximately 10 inches high by 11 inches wide. But, the stitch pattern is a multiple of two, which means that you can continue with the bottom rounds for as many rounds as you like to make this to the size you need.

The Yarn

This crochet bag pattern is worked up in Loops and Threads Impeccable yarn. It’s a medium weight acrylic yarn. It’s a nice yarn for just about anything, including bags!

A cotton yarn will work just as well! Cotton is stronger, but if you line your bag with a strong material, you are okay to use an acrylic as well. This tutorial shows how to line a bag with or without a zipper.

The Stitch Pattern

This crochet bag is started at the bottom with single crochet stitches. The bottom is worked in a rectangle until you have the size that you need.

Then you begin working in rounds with the extended single crochet and chain one spaces until you have the height that you want.

The bag is fastened off for the handles, which are worked in rows and then attached to the bag. If you like your handles in one piece, you may benefit from this tutorial that shows you how to make bag handles for any size bag. You might also be interested in adding this purse closure.

      1. If using acrylic would you line it? I did one in cotton and had to line it and make a liner for the handles to keep them from stretching or “growing”

        1. It’s up to you whether to line it or not, but lining it definitely increases the bags durability. I don’t always line my bags especially if I know that i’ll be using them for yarn projects or other light items.

          1. Ashley, at round 27 you work 1 sc into each st as well as 1 sc into all the ch-1 sps. That then gives you the 88. :)
