Step 1: Material Preparation
Before you start, make sure you have all the necessary materials:
Colorful crochet yarn (choose your favorite colors!)
Yarn-compatible crochet hook
Bag clasp (optional)
Step 2: Choosing Colors
Unleash your creativity! Choose colors that inspire you. It can be a vibrant rainbow or softer tones for an elegant look. It’s your choice!
Step 3: Start of Crochet
Make a magic ring and secure with a slip stitch.
Make a series of chains, the number will depend on the desired size of the bag. Remember, this will be the width of your bag.
Start working high stitches in the chain. This will be the beginning of the height of the bag. Continue until you reach the desired height.
Step 4: Grandma’s Pattern
Work a row of single crochets to create a solid foundation.
Alternate colors with each row, using the classic grandma pattern (3 double crochets in the same stitch, skip 2 stitches, 1 single crochet in the next). Repeat until you reach the desired length.
Step 5: Square Format
At the ends, make increases as needed to create the square shape. This will ensure that your bag has a well-defined shape.
Continue working on all four sides of the bag to maintain an even square shape.
Step 6: Finishing
Finish with a simple row of double crochets for an elegant touch.
If desired, create handles by adding chains to the top of the bag.
Step 7: Final Touch
Cut the thread and make a loop to ensure your work is secure.
Add the Clasp (Optional):
If you want a clasp, sew or pin it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
