18 Free Crochet Bag Patterns To Try Today

I have finally done it.  I have finally created the post that I have always wanted to make about crochet bags.

It took lots of research and lots of searching but I have a collection of 18 crochet bags that are ready for you to make today.
All of these patterns are completely and 100% free.  
None of the patterns require you to subscribe to a website or a newsletter to view them.  
They are either provided on the designer's own website or as a download from Ravelry. For limitations on selling items used from these patterns, please check the patterns themselves.  
I try to only share items that can be sold at craft fairs and such but I might have missed someone's disclaimers in creating this massive list of free crochet patterns.
Check out all of these great patterns and if you like what you see, make sure to tell the designer.  We love hearing from the artists that use our patterns.

The texture of this bag is simply awesome.  The stitches look complicated even though they really aren't.  There is also a video tutorial for this bag that outlines its creation for both left and right-handed crocheters.

2.  Suzie's Stuff Cash and Cards Wallet

Crochet a simple wallet to zazz up your wardrobe.  I love how you can really pick any color you want.  I suggest working in cotton so that it is durable and will handle everyday use.  I also suggest using something machine washable, money is so dirty.

3.  Repeat Crafter Me: Crochet Clutch

Need something cute but not "too fancy" to take for an evening out.  This clutch fits that perfect. Change the yarn to something with glitter and maybe a different applique to customize this clutch for day and night.

This bag is super cute.  It is on my to-do list.  When I have it finished I definitely plan on sharing it with everyone and reviewing the pattern.  I think it's the perfect size to make sure you can carry all your necessities discreetly.  From the picture, it does not look like it would require a lining but I am not completely sure.

The crocodile stitch is super popular right now and this bag is ridiculously cute.  This bag is covered in crocodile stitch crochet and looks absolutely stunning.  The great thing is that the bag pattern is available as a tutorial on youtube.

It would be a top 20 list without an entry from Moogly blog.  It is one of my favorite crochet blogs and I happened to stumble across this super cute tote bag.  The crochet bag looks a little complicated and difficult to crochet but there are tons of pictures and diagrams included with the pattern to help you along in crocheting this super adorable Moroccan Market Tote Bag.

This tote bag is uber cute and would make the perfect shopping bag.  It starts at the bottom with a crochet flower, then it is worked upward with a nifty mesh.  I totally see myself carrying this to the farmer's market or the flea market.

I am in love with this idea.  I hate carrying a purse and a wallet sometimes.  There are just certain situations where all you want on you are your car keys.  This little pouch makes it easy for you to carry your money and chapstick in a convenient place.

Short hikes don't require a backpack but you may want to have some water on you for hydration.  Use this sling to carry your water bottle and keep your hands free for stuff like climbing.

Feel like a dragon protecting her precious egg with this super cute book bag.  The crocodile stitch gives this crochet book bag the texture of scales.  A perfect accessory for that Game of Thrones party or fan.

Pink Pineapple Doily Free Crochet Pattern

Hello and Greetings Everyone I know I haven't been around a lot to post lately but with the holidays, well everyone knows how that goes... But I am back and I have a new crochet pattern to share, it's called the Pink Pineapple Doily. The original pattern appeared in 1951 in the publication Star Book No. 87, Doilies, Doilies, Doilies. For a printer friendly and editable version of this post, scroll down to the bottom and click the button that says "Print Friendly." I am absolutely in love with this doily. It looks like a very complex pattern but if your are just starting to make doilies and other crochet goods this is a great pattern to learn how to read other, more complex patterns. Decorating your home with crochet doilies can add a touch of vintage and handmade charm to any space. Start by considering the size and color of the doilies you would like to use. Crochet doilies come in a variety of sizes and colors, so you can choose to match your existing

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
