Crochet Chevron Shoulder Bag

 




This crochet chevron shoulder bag was made with medium worsted yarn and a J hook. I would suggest an I hook. If you would like to make this crochet bag bigger, add more rounds on the base or go up on a hook size or down on a hook size to make it smaller. 

This beautiful bag is a great way to carry your yarn or your items! This crochet bag measures 12 inches in width and 16 inches in length with the J hook. The handle is 15 inches from the top of the bag to the top of the handle.

 Abbreviations: dc=double crochet sc=single crochet ch=chain sl st=slip stitch 2dctog=2 double crochet together 2sctog=2 single crochet together

 I recommend an I hook. I used a J hook. I found the stitches a little too big. H hook for the strap. Rnd 1: I used blue yarn first, the pink yarn later in the pattern. 

In the Magic Circle, ch 3, work 2 dc, *ch 2, work 3 dc, *Repeat, around for a total of 12 dc and 4 ch 2s (ch 3 is a dc). sl st in the beginning ch 3.

Rnd 9: (you need to use a stitch marker on all 4 sides in the center of the square, so about 13 stitches from each corner then place a stitch marker, on all 4 sides, because you will need to create a gap on all 4 sides) sl st into the previous chain 2 space, Ch 3, dc in the previous chain 2, *dc in each of the next stitches until you reach the center, skip the stitch before the stitch maker, then skip the stitch with the stitch marker, and skip the next stitch after the stitch maker, which is 3 skipped stitches, dc in the next stitch, dc until you reach the chain 2 space, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the chain space, *Repeat around, end with 2 dc and ch 2 in the last chain space, sl st in the beg ch 3 

Rnd 10: sl st into the previous chain 2 space, Ch 3, dc in the previous chain 2, *dc in each of the next 11 stitches, 2dctog, skip two stitches, it will skip over the previous gap, 2dctog, dc until you reach the chain 2 space, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the chain space, *Repeat around, end with 2 dc and ch 2 in the last chain space, sl st in the beg ch 3

Rnds 11-desired depth of the bag: During rounds you can add colors with a sl st in the beginning. I added two rounds of pink after 8 rounds after the stitch marker part, so I added pink yarn twice, then blue yarn twice, then pink yarn again twice. sl st into the previous chain 2 space, Ch 3, dc in the previous chain 2, *dc in each of the next stitches until you reach 3 stitches before the center, 2dctog, skip two stitches, 2dctog, dc until you reach the chain 2 space, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the chain space, *Repeat around, end with 2 dc and ch 2 in the last chain space, sl st in the beg ch 3 Strap 

Handle: I hook, with blue yarn, slip knot onto your hook with your yarn, *work 3 sc in the previous chain 2 peak, sc in the next 12 stitches, until you reach the skipped chain space, that's about 12 sc (may vary) until you reach the previous 2 double crochet together, work 2 single crochet together decrease, this will skip the previous gap, then sc until you reach the chain 2 space peak. 

*Repeat around the top of the bag, finish with a sl st. Straps: H hook, Make 2, chain 95, sc in 2nd chain from the hook, sc in each chain across. 

Fasten off. Sew the strap into the center sc of one of the peaks. Sew the other side of the strap to the other side to the other peak on the same side then flip over and do the same for the other strap. *Repeat again for the other strap. Fasten off and Weave in your ends. End with a sl st into the sc of the peak with the handle. Fasten off and Weave in your ends.

Easy Crochet Cardigan for Women Tutorial

 







This crochet cardigan is a one size fits all, however you can always add more rows and chains to make this bigger. 

I'm usually a size medium in a women size. This finished cardigan rested a little past my hips. This cardigan neck folds for a collar and rest half way in the front on both sides. This pattern has a lot of room and give to it. 

The length is about 41-42 inches and the width is about 31-32 inches. 

The starting chain is the length of the cardigan and the rows is the width of this pattern. 

With a K hook and medium worsted yarn. I used two and half skeins of yarn. 

Mainstays 5 Oz Sparkle Acyrilic Yarn, 98% Acyrilic 2% 

I did a loose chain of 130 with a K hook. This length is right at my hips. If you want it longer, I would make more chains. Gauge is about 4 stitches per inch. But since it's folded than that 1 inch will be half an inch when you add more chains.

So you could add about 4 chains to add a half inch more than 130 to make it go past your hips or keep it the same chain and hook size. I did a hdc in each stitch, but you could do dc or sc too. You may need more or less rows if you change this type of stitch. The width is around 31 inches so if you change the type of stitch then make sure its around that width unless you want it bigger or smaller. 

Rows 1-59: create a chain of 130 plus 2, work hdc in the second chain from the hook and each chain across. Turn
*Ch 2, hdc in the back loop in the same stitch, hdc in each back loop across, Turn *Repeat, I did 59 rows. 
Fold in half with the stitches going in a vertical position. On both sides, on the top, go down about 8 inches and leave that space open for the arms. Then sew both sides together and leave the 8 inches open and the bottom open. Fasten off and weave in your ends. You will place both your arms in both sleeve holes. The collar will fold automatically on both sides.
