Crochet Free bag Pattern
Free Crochet Bag Pattern

Few months ago, I came up with this cute, crochet wip bag pattern for my Plenty crochet work in progress (WIP) that I need to carry along while leaving the house.

It has been a life saver since then. i added a twist, to allow me have my yarn come out from the bag while my yarn is still inside the bag! i think this is genius of me, what do you think?

The picture below shows the little opening by the sides, where I have my yarn easily accessible without my skeins/balls getting out of the bag.

Pattern notes:

  1. Chains at the beginning of the row counts as a stitch

  3. Pattern construction – starts with a side in rounds, the body is then worked by turning after each row, finally the other side is made.
  4. Do not join after the rounds/rows, except where stated. Simply move the stitch marker at the end of each rounds
  5. Handle can be made as instructed using yarn or sew in a pre-made handle
