So easy that you can have your crocheted crosboddy in a day!
I do not like bags too much but I love crossbody bags. They are so easy to use and so pretty! I bring today this easy pattern for you to have your crochetted bag within a day.
The truth is that you can make it so fast because of the T-Shirt yarn and I like that fact.
For this crochet pattern you can use leftovers of yarn from other projects that you have at home. I also used a recycled chain handle from an old bag I had at home.
I leave you with the pattern that , as I mentioned before, is easy to follow:
Project Level: Beginner
- T-shirt Yarn: 50m/ 300 gr approx., Col. Grey
- Crochet Hook: size J- 10 (U.S.)/ (6 mm) (or size needed to obtain gauge )
- Chain handle
- 2 D-Ring
- Tapestry Needle
- Stitch Marker
In a 4″ x 4″ swatch, with a crochet hook of 6mm and in single crochet ( sc ) = 9 stitches x 11 rows
Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.
Final measurements of the crossbody bags are: 8.30″ x 5.10″
- The bag is crocheted in the round.
- Join always with slip stitch.
- The first ch of each row is a turning chain, does not count a s a stitch.
- I used a recycled chain handled, you can buy one or recycle it.
Abbreviations ( US Terms):
Slip Stitch: sl st
