Single Crochet Bag

This single crochet bag pattern is worked up in only single crochet stitches. It is perfect for absolute beginners to practice one of the easiest stitches in crochet. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, the crochet bag is perfect for everyone.

Although it’s a simple crochet bag pattern, the variegated yarn gives it a nice color design. The key is to maintain the same tension throughout to get consistent spirals across the bag.

Another thing I love about this bag is that it is solid and durable! At the same time, you might still want to line the inside with a sturdy fabric to make it last even longer. Here is the tutorial on how to line a bag.

About the Yarn

I used a worsted weight yarn in a variegated colorway and was super happy with the way the spirals turned out. I had to unravel a few times to keep the spirals somewhat consistent throughout. Depending on your tension, you may get a whole different design. That’s the beauty of working with variegated yarns, you get a different design each time!

If you are not keen on variegated yarns you can just as well use a solid color, or add a few stripes to make this your very own to suit your style.

The yarn is Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, a #4 worsted-weight cotton yarn. It’s nice and sturdy, especially when worked with the single crochet stitch.

Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream is another great yarn that you could use for this bag.

About the Size

The size is given in one size, but it can easily be adjusted as there is no stitch count.

To adjust the size, simply do more or less rounds of the increase rounds to get the rectangle to the size that you want the bottom of the bag to be. Then continue in an even pattern until you get to the height that you want.

Then for the handles, you can refer to this tutorial on how to make bag handles for any sized bag. It’s a quick and easy formula that allows you to customize the handles as you like.

How It’s Made

The easy crochet bag pattern is worked in one piece from the bottom up, making it great for beginners. Even the handles are worked in one piece with the bag.

As already mentioned, the only stitches needed are the single crochet stitches. So if you can make that, can join a round and are ready to work on the opposite side of a starting chain then you are ready to crochet this bag.
