Crochet Laundry Bag

This crochet laundry bag features a v-stitch pattern that allows your clothes to breathe while waiting to be washed. It’s got a drawstring at the top along with two handles to make it easy to close and carry as you need. It’s great for those having to go to the laundromat to do their laundry.

Another beauty of this bag is that you can crochet it in a light, dark or colorful yarn to help you sort your laundry. Then, when you throw your dirty laundry in, you can also throw this bag in and then have a clean bag to transport your laundry back home.

The bag is not that big, but big enough to hold a small to medium size load of laundry. I used cotton yarn to crochet this, and it has shrunk in the wash because I dried it on high heat. So you’ll have to be careful when washing and drying if you need a larger bag. You could also make this with a synthetic worsted weight, and then you wouldn’t have to worry about it shrinking. :) However, it might stretch out a lot.

And if you don’t need a laundry bag, you could use it to store your kid’s toys or other small items that need a home.
