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.

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.
