Crochet Drawstring Bag Pattern

27 Aug

Some of you have expressed interest in the pattern for this cute little bag:

So, here you go!  Let me know if anything needs to be fixed… I forgot to write down the bit about the handle & had to frog it!

For this pattern I used 2 balls of 88yds (50g) acrylic Dynasty Yarn (a very thin ribbon yarn) and a 6.0mm hook.


sc (single crochet), sc inc (single crochet increase), sc dec (single crochet decrease)

hdc (half double crochet)

trc (triple crochet)

mc (magic circle)

sl st (slip stitch)

Save yourself some energy (and tons of counting) by using a stitch marker!  You can buy fancy ones, but I just use a paper clip.  Hook your stitch marker on the last stitch of your row… even if you lose count you’ll still know where the “end” of the circle is!

Rnd 1: sc 6 in a mc

Rnd 2: sc inc around

Rnd 3: *sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 4: *2sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 5: *3 sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 6: *4 sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 7: *5 sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 8: *6 sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 9: *7sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 10: *8 sc, sc inc* around

Rnd 11-20 (12 rounds): dbl around

Rnd 21: *8sc, sc dec* around

Rnd 22: hdc around

Rnd 23: *7sc, sc dec* around

Rnd 24: hdc around

Rnd 25: *6sc, sc dec* around

Rnd 26-27: dbl around

Rnd 28: trc around

Rnd 29: hdc around; 5 trc in last st, chain 3, TURN. (this is the beginning of the handle)

Rnd 30-41: 4 trc, chain 3, TURN.

Rnd 42: attach handle to top of bag using sl st, FO.

Drawstring: Ch 100 (give or take, it depends on how loose you ch & how long you want the string to be) & FO; weave ch. through the row of trc.

DONE!  Easy-peasy pattern, and so cute!  The finished bag is about 7 inches wide by 7 inches deep (not counting the handle), but this will change depending on what kind of yarn you use & how tight your stitches are.   })i({
