Supplies:

  • Chocolate Brown Yarn
  • 6 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Craft Scissors

Crochet Abbreviations:

st = stitch

sl st = slip stitch

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

dc = double crochet

Crochet Satchel Pattern:

Row 1: Ch 22. Work a dc into the 2nd ch from the hook, dc in the next 20 st (20 total dc st).

Row 2: Turn, ch 2, dc back loop only until you reach the end of the row, ending with a dc stitch (20 total dc st).

Row 3: Turn, ch 2, dc front loop only until you reach the end of the row, ending with a dc stitch (20 total dc st).

Row 4-28: Repeat rows 2 & 3. Finish off, weave in ends.

Strap: Ch 98. Work a dc into the 2nd ch from the hook, dc into the next 96 stitches. Finish off, weave in ends.

Step One – Complete the crochet pattern. Your crochet piece will be approximately 18″ long. Fold the bottom six inches up and, using a yarn needle and extra strands of yarn, sew the sides together.

Step Two – Attach the strap to the satchel. Use yarn and the yarn needle to sew the strap to the sides of the satchel.

Step Three – Weave in any loose ends of yarn.

Step Four – (Optional) Add embellishments like leather, clasps, and charms.

I loved personalizing this bag by weaving a few strips of leather into the crochet stitches.

Variations:

  • As you can see in the photo, I created a flap for this bag. When sewing your sides up, don’t fold it completely in half. You may find that using a stitch marker or two helps keep things even.
  • Instead of one solid color, try different colors for the bag and strap. You could even make it striped.
  • Try single crochet stitches, instead of double. Make sure the finished length is the same though.
  • Line the entire bag with a fun, coordinating fabric.
  • Easily make this beautiful bag adult-sized. Just add stitches to the width and extra rows to make it larger.

Tips and Tricks:

  • When choosing crochet projects, always check the skill level needed, to be sure it’s a good fit for you.
  • Crochet hook size can make a real difference in the finished size of your crochet items. If you tend to crochet quite tightly, it may be beneficial to go up a size. If your crochet stitches tend to be loose, go down a size.
  • Only have worsted weight yarn, but the pattern calls for bulky yarn? No problem! Just use two strands of worsted weight yarn, held together.
  • For easy washing, choose a cotton yarn.
