Crochet Briefcase (free pattern)

Crochet Patterns

Go in elegant, feminine style to the office. What could be more contemporary and confidence-building than an elegant crochet office bag to hold your iPad, paperwork and all your great ideas?

What if I’d tell you that such won’t have to set you back a $000, but more like $10? Are you excited? crochet briefcase 2

You could use this project to learn how to crochet. Suffice to say that this free crochet bag pattern is really easy. And because it’s using rug yarn and hook size K, it’s really fast also.

This bag could easily be an Anthrolopogie idea, but it isn’t.  Yet, it would match many of their Winter / Spring outfits, like this two Spring dresses for example.

Not a tote bag, a market grocery bag, a diaper bag, nor a messenger bag, but a crochet office bag that holds the lot!
