Large Shabby-Chic Tote Bag – Free Crochet Pattern


The beginning of the week is always BAG TIME at FineCraftGuild. We have a nice collection of free bag patterns already, but welcome today’s find of a wonderfully easy to crochet tote bag, that’s just as happy to stay around the house as it is being taken around town. It’s the kind of bag that, when filled with towels and some silk flowers would make a romantic welcoming gift in the guest room to a friend coming for a visit.

The bag design is roomy and can hold quite a few things. It’s an attractive romantic storage solution.  As it’s a durable bag  made with two-strands of yarn, it could easily be used as a book bag to take the library, beach bag for a long summer day or market bag to stock up on fruit & veggies.

Craft Supplies

22 balls of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn Solids. The yarn in the picture is off-white, however jute is another perfect color for this project.
