Round Crochet Bag with Tassel Pattern

We’re ultra excited to share this bag with you. We wanted to design something you could take along with you to lunch with your girlfriends, or to a night out on the town. It quickly became a favorite design – and we want to take it everywhere.

You’ll need to grab three skeins of yarn in your favorite color, and get crocheting. You can pick whatever color matches what you wear most. Classic black? A complimentary tone?

You’ll be working in magic rings. If you’ve never used them before, well, they’re just as fun as they sound. Learn this new skill if you’ve never crocheted using magic rings before, or continue to perfect an old skill. At the end, you’ll have a practical, gorgeous bag to add to your collection.

ASSEMBLY:

Placing the right sides of the work together, whip stitch the piece together leaving 45 stitches open on top. To make handles, sl st to join and make 15 sc, ch 30, sk 15, then make 15 more sc. Do not ch, turn work and sl st back over the 15 sc of the previous row. Make 45 dc in the ch 30 sp, then 15 more sl st down the other side. Break yarn, and repeat on the other side.

With the red yarn, ch 30 using a 4.5mm hook, leaving long tails on both ends.

Make tassel by wrapping the red yarn around the cardboard square about 40 times. Cutting just the working thread, leave the yarn wrapped around the cardboard and thread yarn needle with about 18 inches of red yarn. Slide needle under the yarn on the cardboard, and tie a loose knot with the yarn threaded on the needle. Cut the bottom of the yarn on the cardboard, then tighten the knot at the top. Wrap the yarn on the needle securely around the tassel, about 1” down. Pull snugly, then secure with a knot. Pull up through top to use to attach to chain. Weave ends in, pulling any long tails down in to blend in with tassel.

| Crochet

It’s summertime and the living is easy. So we made sure your crochet patterns are quick and easy, too! #crochetlove #summercrochet #crochetpatterns #crochettops #crochetbags21 Quick and Easy Crochet Patterns to Make This Summer

It’s summertime and the living is easy. So we made sure your crochet patterns are easy, too. But the best part? They’re all so good, no one will be able to tell you didn’t spend days working on them. You’ll be able to spend your days in the sun instead.

We’ve got a mix of all the things you need to keep your summer in style. Go for a classic like a cute head kerchief, or let your inner boho spirit out with a trendy crop top. And you can never go wrong with a sundress or summer wrap.

Other people like to read by the pool. We recommend bringing your crochet needle. A warm day relaxing and making a special project sounds pretty perfect to us. Sunscreen, an ice cold drink, and yarn – that’s a perfect summer recipe.

Since these patterns are all so simple to crochet, you might just find yourself making all these pieces. Make some for yourself, make some for your friends – but be sure you make them in time for those sunshiny days.
