One Piece Crochet Bag Pattern – Aconley

This one piece crochet bag pattern is worked from the bottom up using a textured and solid stitch pattern that you’ll enjoy taking with you as you run your errands.

Although the stitch pattern is nice and solid, you’ll still want to line it for even more strength and durability. It doesn’t take much time to line it, but it can make your crocheting time so much more valuable as you won’t need another bag for a long time.

Crochet this for yourself and your loved ones, adjusting the size and colors to match each individual.

Wash and dry your bag by hand to keep it looking new and from shrinking in the dryer. At the same time, shrinking it down would help make it even stronger.

The Size

This free crochet pattern is given in one size only.

The body of the bag measures approximately 34″ around by 12″ high. The base of the bag measures approximately 13″ by 5″. However, you can increase or decrease the size of the bag as needed by doing more or fewer repeats of the base rounds.

The stitch pattern is only a multiple of two for the body.

As for the handles, they are super easy to adjust for any sized bag.

The Yarn

I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, a medium worsted weight yarn. I wasn’t sure about the salt and pepper speckles because they make it more difficult to see the textures. But I kept going and think it turned out very nicely!

The pretty textures would look great in a solid color as well as in a striped design.

Use any similar cotton yarn to make this.

The Stitch Pattern

The textured crochet tote bag pattern is worked in single crochet stitches and a cross stitch variation, which consists of the single crochet crossed with the double crochet 2 together.

It’s very pretty, yet easy enough for anyone who has mastered the very basics in crochet.

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 stitches 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.
