“A lightweight, beach-ready bag.”
Designed for the 2019 Puget Sound LYS Tour, this cute, crocheted bag—a free pattern—just feels like summer! With a simple shape and practical size—plenty roomy for your phone, wallet, keys, passport, etc.—and your choice of a crocheted or leather lacing strap, it’s quite easy to whip up. You might crochet one to match each sundress in your closet!

Wool and the Gang’s Ra-Ra Raffia is perfect for the Crocheted Passport Pouch. This biodegradable, vegan yarn is made of 100% long wood fiber—essentially paper. And it’s very crochet-friendly! Lightweight, quick-drying, and with an excellent structure, Ra-Ra Raffia performs perfectly in this little beach-ready pouch.
