Simple Stripes Single Crochet Bag

By CrochetNCrafts.

The simple stripes single crochet bag pattern is perfect for absolute crochet beginners. For those not comfortable making color changes, the bag can easily be worked up in a single color if desired.

This bag pattern is also a great option if you have leftover yarn that needs to be used up. I had lots of both colors, and thus, I chose to make three sets of stripes with the same color. But you can mix and match your yarns as much as you like in order to use up the smallest amounts of scraps.

Another bonus of this bag is that it is nice and sturdy. However, for even more durability, you can line it with a simple lining.

It’s stylish, making it great for anyone in need of a bag. The only thing is that it’s not all that big, but it’s super easy to increase the base of the bag to get the size that you need.

This free crochet pattern is available in the Summer Crochet Patterns Collection on Etsy.

Although perfect for the summer, many of these crochet patterns can be used throughout the year.
