Trend Alert: Crochet Circle Bags!
All summer long we’ve been admiring crochet circle bags! They are simple to make, easy to personalize, and this is the perfect bag to carry you into the fall season! Use your crochet circle bag as you return to school or work, or use it as you start to retreat indoors for the colder months. If you’ve been admiring the crochet circle bag trend, we have a few fun patterns for you to try!
1. Basking Crossbody Bag
Ashlyn Holmes designed the Basking Crossbody Bag in Interweave Crochet Summer 2018. The bag is made of a simple crochet circle, but it’s made special with hemp twine and a yarn button to dress it up. You’ll love this project if you’re on the hunt for the perfect crochet circle bag.
2. Flourishing Purse
If you would like to dress up a circle bag in a different way, try the Flourishing Purse from Brenda K. B. Anderson from Interweave Crochet Spring 2018. The bag is worked in a simple crochet circle with center single crochet stitch. The bag also showcases embroidery, which is also a hot crafting trend, and fringe. Learn new techniques with this fantastic pattern!
3. Folktale Purse
The Folktale Purse, designed by Jane Howorth for Interweave Crochet Winter 2018, is constructed with an oval pattern folded in half and crochet ribbing around the edge. The ribbing is created with a combination of single crochet and reverse single crochet.
These crochet circle bag patterns are perfect for carrying the essentials: phone, keys, wallet, etc. If you’re hoping for a larger crochet circlet bag (perhaps one in which you could fit your latest crochet project), try working the pattern with a larger hook and a thicker material like a bulky yarn, rope, or jute cord from the hardware store. Simply bind off when the bag reaches the size you would like. If you want to create your own circle bag pattern, you’ll want to read up on how to create the perfect crochet circle.
