I don’t know what it is about bags that make them so fun to design. Maybe it’s the fact that they aren’t limited by shape, color, size… there’s a lot of freedom in that!

This bag is a very simple pattern; it’s crocheted in a single color, and the striping is added at the end using a surface crochet technique. The macrame cord drawstring is a classic braid, decorated with cute wooden beads (optional). It’s the perfect size to carry your essentials or a small yarn project!
