Textured Seed Stitch Bag

This crochet pattern is for a seed stitch bag. I would say the size is about an average size, and it can be crocheted up within a day or so depending on how fast you crochet as well as on how steady you are at it.

The spiral effect of the stitch pattern is naturally created by the seed stitches. When I first had the bag in mind, I pictured the spirals to go around further than what they do. But I think this looks good too, and perhaps in the near future I will design one with more spirals.

For this bag pattern I used Patons Canadiana – The New Generation, but any similar yarn will work. Red Heart Soft Touch is a perfect match in the gauge, and is also similar in the texture of the fabric.

  • Other: Measuring Tape, Scissors, Yarn Needle.

Measurements

  • Gauge: First 9 Row = 4"
  • Finished Size: Bottom measures about 8.75" in diameter, and 12" from top to bottom. You can easily adjust the height by doing more or less repeats of the pattern.

Abbreviations

  • Ch/Chs = Chain/Chains

  • Rep = Repeat
  • Rnd/Rnds = Round/Rounds
  • Sc = Single Crochet
  • Sk = Skip
  • Sl St = Slip Stitch
  • St/Sts = Stitch/Stitches

Notes

  • The pattern is a little tricky in round 22. The tricky part is due to the front post and back post stitches.Here is a tutorial to help with rnd 22.
  • The suggestions made were to remember to do the half double crochet that comes after the back post double crochet, as well as to remember to skip the stitch just after the back post double crochet.
  • Also, it may be helpful to leave the stitch marker in until row 22 is completed.
  • Unless otherwise stated, the chains count towards the stitch count given at the end of each round.

  1. Wow! Love it! It looks really special… not the ‘usual’ crochet bag.
    I’ve put on ‘my project file’ ;) Again, thanks a lot for sharing and teaching us (the special ‘tuto’ for round 22 IS definetily very helpful)
    Greetings from Spain

  2. Thank you for the pattern its very pretty..my problem is row 22..after I do the first set of six all the way to the hdc for the next set from * to ** do I leave out the last hdc?? Also I would like to know just to be clear if the sc and DC go into the same stitch or not…please help me I really want to make this bag

      1. One more ?…when I skip that last stitch and repeat is it two skipped stitches…..dcbp, ch1 SK st, sk st, sc,dc

        1. Sorry, I think I misunderstood you earlier. You continue to do the hdc after the ** until you get to the very last repeat. So you would sk a st, hdc, and then start again at *. Then end the round at the ** omitting the last hdc. Sorry about that… :(

  3. My st count is still off…sc,DC 6 times..sc dc, sc dc, sc dc, sc dc, sc dc, sc dc, hdc is this right? Sorry for all the ?s just trying to get it right

    1. Yes, that looks right… then you ch 1, sk, bpdc, fpdc in 2, bpdc, ch 1, sk, hdc and start again from * Have you checked out this tutorial on working around the post stitches? https://crochetncrafts.com/skipping-stitches-before-and-after-fpdc-and-bpdc-stitches/ (Sorry the link wasn’t working within the pattern due to blog migration, but it’s been fixed now.)

      Anyhow, that seems to be a problem for many, but not sure if this is your case or not. Let me know… and if that doesn’t help, would you send a picture to rhelena@crochetncrafts.com. Thanks so much.

  4. I’m really like this bag. starting my christmas gifts and this fits the bill.
    I got started but, as your pattern says, row 22 gets tricky. if you can help my with one question.
    when row 2 is complete, how many “backpost/front post” point will there be. I keep ending up with 7, but I’m concerned that when I attach the handles at the top of those “stripes” it would make the handles unevenly spaced.
    thank you
