- Tapestry needle
- Two handles or straps of your choice
Follow these step-by-step instructions to create your own gorgeous crochet blanket bag model:
Step 1: Make a Foundation Chain
Start by making a foundation chain with 51 stitches. You can adjust the number of stitches to make the bag bigger or smaller, but keep in mind that the number must be divisible by 3.
Step 2: Make the First Row
For the first row, double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook. *Skip 2 chains, then make 3 double crochets in the next chain. Repeat from * across the row, ending with 1 double crochet in the last chain. This will create a shell pattern
Step 3: Continue the Pattern
For the next rows, chain 3 and turn your work. Double crochet in the first stitch, then *skip 2 stitches and make 3 double crochets in the next stitch. Repeat from * across the row, ending with 1 double crochet in the top chain of the previous row.Repeat this pattern
until your work measures approximately 40 inches or the desired length of your bag.
Step 4: Make the Sides
When your work has reached the desired length, it is time to create the sides of your bag. Fold your work in half with the right sides facing each other. Then, slip stitch the two sides together, leaving approximately 8 inches open for the top of the bag.
Step 5: Add Handles or Straps
Once you have finished stitching the sides of your bag, it is time to add the handles or straps of your choice. You can use pre-made handles or straps, or you can crochet them yourself using the same yarn as your bag.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
To finish off your bag, weave in any loose ends using your tapestry needle. You can also add any embellishments you like, such as buttons or tassels.
