Royal Bag Crochet Pattern

Updated: Jul 12

While working on creating new stitches for my Hodgepodge Shawl I stumbled on this beauty! I'm so over the moon in LOVE with this stitch design I just had to share it with you all again.








I have worked tirelessly to try and create an amazing tank top with this design for months. I just couldn't for the life of me find the yarn that it needed to achieve the perfect look. As I was fussing with the third try, I had an epiphany. Well actually it was more like a tantrum as I ripped it off the mannequin and threw it on the floor. While I stared at it lying there, with smoke coming out of my ears, I realized it looked like an apologetic super cute bag. Since doing anything the normal way is just not my thing, I decided to go with this very strange way of creating the cutest bag pattern I think I've ever made (or accidentally stumbled across).



Here's what you'll need to get started..........

Materials:
I Love This Cotton yarn (approx. 340 yds total)
H(5mm) Hook
Scissors
Needle

Abbreviations(US Terms):
SK = Skip
sts = Stitches
ST = Stitch
SL= Slip Stitch
CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
SPD TC = Spiked Treble Crochet
FLO = Front Loop Only


NOTES:
- To adapt the strap length you will need to add equal amounts a multiples of 4 to the strap portion stitch counts. EX: for another 2” length of the strap: 2”= 8 sts need to be added to the front and back of the strap on both sides so because the strap is folded in half you will actually need to add a total of 16 sts to the 55 sts of the strap portion on both sides which would then give you a starting chain count of 192.

- I've created a video to help explain the SPD TC stitch in this design.

- Finished bag with this pattern should be approximately 8.5” strap drop length, 13” opening width, 14" center width, & 11” depth(minus strap).

- This pattern is worked strap first, downward, then closing up the bottom.
